May 18, 2022 - ASIC regulated multi-asset online trading provider ACY Securities has announced their sponsorship of Barnardos Australia, a respected child safety and family welfare organisation.

ACY Securities stated that the company believes in giving people in need the opportunity and support that can help set them up for a better life. Ashley Jessen, Chief Operating Officer at ACY said, “With their focus on empowering every child to reach their full potential, Barnardos plays an important role in shaping the future of our young generation. We at ACY are privileged to be part of this vital work in supporting children and families across Australia. As most of our team are parents, this charity hit home, and we can't wait to make a positive difference in their lives and see these children blossom.”

The Barnardos sponsorship will give ACY and its employees another opportunity to do volunteer work through different outreach programs.

Since 1921, Barnardos has provided vital support to thousands of vulnerable children, young people and families each year. Barnardos’ early-intervention and crisis care services combat family and domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, mental health, poverty and homelessness, to strengthen families and support vulnerable children to recover and thrive.

Mark McDaid, Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships at Barnardos Australia said, “We are delighted to welcome ACY Securities as a partner of Barnardos Australia. Their commitment plays a vital role in transforming the lives of vulnerable children, young people and families.

"Just as ACY aims to empower their clients, Barnardos’ vision is to empower every child in Australia to reach their full potential. And it is only thanks to the vision and generosity of our amazing supporters that we can continue to act in the moments when children and families need us most.

"Barnardos look forward to working with the entire ACY Securities team and thank them for being champions for children!”

ACY’s sponsorship of Barnardos coincides with the celebration of the National Volunteer Week from 16th-22nd May 2022.
