Billbergia’s support for people and communities is embedded in our business approach and is the foundation principle of our ‘Creating Communities’ philosophy. We care deeply about people and are committed to fostering strong, healthy and enduring relationships with the communities, institutions and government agencies our business engages with. We are committed to building a positive legacy for generations to come through the places we create and the high ethical, professional and environmental standards we apply to every aspect of our work.
Whether it’s first home buyers, downsizers or families, we understand that community is so much more than a masterplan. It’s the facilities and spaces that enable people to connect with each other and form a sense of attachment to their neighbourhood.
Through several partnerships with the NSW Land and Housing Corporation and our Community Housing Provider, Evolve Housing, we are also committed to delivering much needed social and affordable housing.
Billbergia’s overarching approach includes delivering a range of transport and social infrastructure such as libraries, community centres, local retail and medical facilities, as well as multi-use indoor sports centres that contribute to great places and spaces.
Our aim is to ensure early residents have access to local retail, community facilities, green space, shared activity venues and public transport. Delivering social and physical infrastructure at the early stages is, we believe, an important demonstration of our commitment to genuine value creation.

Charitable & Philanthropic Activities
Billbergia is also committed to important charitable and humanitarian causes, which is fundamental to our company’s strong social and ethical values.
Over the years Billbergia, through the Kinsella family, has carried its philosophy of ‘Creating Communities’ to helping the local organizations to flourish, as well as supporting the disadvantaged and vulnerable.
The Good Shepherd Services and Hope For Cambodian Children Foundation Inc. (HOPE) are just two of our significant avenues of support.
HOPE is an Australian non-government, not-for-profit organisation which aims to give a future to children whose lives have been affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Cambodia and seeks to provide support, healthcare and education to children and families.
HOPE has built a centre in Battambang Cambodia to care for a growing community of over 150 children, dedicated to providing shelter, food, clothing, medicine and education to children and families who are poor, at risk, orphaned, abandoned, sick, or suffering from HIV/AIDS. Most of the 150 or more children at HOPE are orphans. Since 2005, with the support of Billbergia’s Managing Director John Kinsella AM, HOPE has flourished and has now expanded its programs beyond the orphanage and is now reaching out to the assist the wider community.
At the HOPE Centre the children are provided with catch up programs so they can return to school. These programs include after-school classes that are also available to the poorest families in the community. HOPE operates HIV-prevention programs and supports those most at risk of contracting HIV as well as providing other health and hygiene education.
Everyone at Billbergia shares a special bond with HOPE and we receive wonderful support through the contributions of staff, consultants, suppliers and prominent individuals keen to help and support a worthy cause which John Kinsella and his team at Billbergia are so passionate about.

Community Support & Sponsorships
We recognise that ethics in action means supporting people beyond the commercial work we do. This is another aspect to our philosophy of ‘Creating Communities’ – helping local organisations and communities to flourish, as well as supporting the disadvantaged and vulnerable.
Ensuring places cater for people of all-abilities is fundamental to our sense of what ‘community’ means. This extends to the events we host such as the annual Billbergia Bennelong Bridge Run at Wentworth Point. Read more about BBBRUN →.
We also support local events such as the Rhodes Moon Festival and Lunar New Year events, local Christmas events, monthly markets and special event activities such as the pet friendly Paws at the Point event.
