Working in the community

It makes sense that when all our electricians and plumbers are in the same place we use our combined skills and experience to make a real difference.

Since 2010, the Australian and New Zealand electrical and plumbing Members have joined forces, delivering just under $1m dollars’ worth of work to charities throughout Australasia, making a difference to the lives of many.


Supporting Beyond Blue

All too often we hear of depression, anxiety and suicide across Australia with it notably seen in the construction industry, across small businesses and even in young apprentices. This is close to our heart at O’Brien. We developed the Monkey Off Your Back annual motorcycle ride where passionate Members travel Australia raising funds and spreading the message for Beyond Blue.

By raising funds for Beyond Blue, we support the continuation of their great work and most importantly, we get blokes talking in both the community and across our Member network.
