Cleaning and labour hire with a social conscience
We’re a certified social enterprise with a simple yet powerful goal – to tackle youth unemployment and alleviate the effects of poverty and hardship for areas of need in Metropolitan Melbourne.
We work with businesses to achieve their social procurement targets, through services in cleaning, labour hire, test & tag and ground maintenance, while supporting young people to learn, earn and thrive.
As a Social Traders certified organisation, we work with and help support organisations looking to make a positive impact on their community.
Whether you need labour hire or commercial cleaning, our workforce of dedicated and hard-working young people are here to meet your needs.
Engaging our services not only means supporting your own business or project, but also making a positive impact on a young person’s life.
Employment for vulnerable Victorians is an area of focus for the William Buckland Foundation. We are very pleased to support Sparkways, as an organisation that is tackling this issue head-on for young people facing barriers to employment.
Through our support, it has been exciting to see Sparkways evolve and expand their offering into service areas like Test & Tag, which will go on to support the creation of more jobs and training opportunities for other young people.
"In the past few years being with Sparkways, I have been able to watch my son grow into a more independent individual. Sparkways has given my son a purpose, and the ability to set goals for himself – which he had never been able to do before. We cannot thank the team enough for what they’ve done for him."
As a leader in the social procurement space, McConnell Dowell highly values our long-term relationship with Sparkways. We particularly appreciate their collaborative and flexible approach to service delivery, encompassing cleaning and labour hire that not only provides excellent value to our customers but delivers lasting benefits to the community.
