corporate social responsibility

As a business dedicated to supporting students and young adults, we see ourselves as being more than just accommodation providers. We pride ourselves on giving back to our community, encouraging sustainable practices where possible and creating a safe, supportive environment for residents, visitors and staff.

charity partnerships

CLV has partnered with not-for-profit organisation beyondblue, to promote awareness of depression, anxiety and the channels where people can seek help if required. As a business that works with young adults at a key period in their lives and has hundreds of staff across Australia, supporting good mental health is close to our hearts.

fundraising for beyondblue

beyondblueCLV is an official partner of beyondblue. Fundraising events across our Australian villages will directly contribute towards creating an Australian community that understands depression and anxiety.

All donations will be matched dollar for dollar by CLV, up to the value of $20,000 per year. We are very excited to support the great work that beyondblue does across Australia!
