Companies aren’t logos, or buildings, or car brands. Companies are made of people, and the people who make up Holden come from all walks of life. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
These concepts go to the very heart and soul of what we do as an automotive company, so it makes sense that we actively address any accessibility barriers at Holden through our Disability Action Plan. For any employee affected by disability, either personally or through a loved one, we promise to be as accessible, flexible and supportive as we can.

Through our Holden Home Ground Advantage grants program, we’ve also been able to improve accessibility in community sport, awarding the NSW Powerchair Football Association $100K to purchase new powerchairs so more players can participate.
Stacey Copas, sports person, disability advocate and friend of Holden, gives us the low-down on why this is so important.
Since she was 12, Stacey has been a quadriplegic. But that’s never stopped her from getting out there and encouraging others to aim higher and go further.
Stacey features as part of our ‘Supporting the Drivers of Change’ campaign in which Holden will reward one lucky individual with a $50,000 grant for driving change in their community.
