Real Communications believes in business for good and we make a positive difference by investing in our community.
We donate 15 per cent of our time to pro-bono communications work, which includes mentoring communications students, running networking events for our local business community and hosting a monthly radio show on Plains FM which empowers women to share their stories with a wider audience.
Improving the environment, particularly waterways, is an important cause for Real Communications. We are the principal sponsor for the annual Ōpāwaho Heathcote River Network’s World Rivers Day photography competition which raises awareness of issues facing our urban streams and rivers. We also support Million Metres Streams Project with their Silverstream project which enhances our local waterway with riparian planting.
