Sponsorship with R U OK

As a business, we make tough clothes to help our customers at work and to get through tough physical conditions.

Mentally, we also encourage our team members to help their mates through tough times. Tradies face various challenges across their working lives - from job uncertainty to financial pressures, intense physical demands and workplace culture issues. These pressures can build up and impact tradies' mental and emotional wellbeing if they don't feel they can talk to others about their struggles.

Hard Yakka have been proud partners of Aussie harm prevention charity, R U OK? since October 2019 to help raise awareness of mental health in the male-dominated tradie field. We raise funds to support the cause and the 'Tradies Tools to Talk' resource, reminding everyone that having regular and meaningful conversations with mates and loved ones could save lives.

R U OK? Empowers people to meaningfully connect and lend support to their peers by building on motivation, confidence and skills. R U OK? reinforce the importance of investing time in personal relationships by staying connected with friends, family and colleagues through all of life's ups and downs, big or small.
