Hello Sunday Morning wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our partners. Spread across Government, Philanthropy and Business, our partners are committed to changing the world’s relationship with alcohol.
From July 2018, the Australian Government Department of Health has supported the Daybreak program by providing a $3million grant to cover the registration costs of 20,000 Australian. This has opened up the program to people who might otherwise have been unable to access the support they needed to change their relationship with alcohol.
In 2013, Hello Sunday Morning joined forces with VicHealth for a three-year partnership aiming to up the ante in Victoria, and change the culture of drinking, particularly among young people aged 16-29. This partnership has evolved to include an Emergency Department screening project in 2016 and in 2017 a project focused on shifting the Victorian drinking culture by calling upon those who are concerned about family or friends to speak to their loved ones.
In 2015, The University of Queensland conducted research on the online self-expression and experimentation as ‘reflectivism’: using text analytics to examine the participatory forum Hello Sunday Morning. In 2014, The university also conducted a profile of the demographics, goals and alcohol consumption of participants in Hello Sunday Morning, an online forum discussing experiences in abstaining from alcohol.
In 2015, Hello Sunday Morning was awarded Macquarie Group Foundation’s Social Innovation Award. The grant will allow us to integrate our programs into the existing medical and health care system in Australia. With Macquarie Group Foundation’s support we are working closely with GP’s, hospitals and treatment centres across Australia to improve access to life-changing digital health options.

Vodafone Foundation have a mission to invest in mobile technology that can tangibly improve the health of Australians, and have supported Hello Sunday Morning to create two mobile apps which have supported over 50,000 people.
The Harold Mitchell Foundation works directly with HSM to report on the numbers of people who commit to a period of sobriety and help share their stories of change. This funding will assist in launching Hello Sunday Morning on a national playing field, complementing top-down government campaigns with an effective grassroots movement.
Hello Sunday Morning has been working on a community wellbeing program with The Ian Potter Foundation to pilot a university-based Hello Sunday Morning project at the University of Queensland and University of New South Wales.
Over the past three years, Hello Sunday Morning has been supported by Dentsu Aegis through the provision of advertising across the country. We have taken our brand from being known by a few people in Brisbane to 17% national brand awareness (nearly 30% for under 30 year olds). Dentsu Aegis has been able to secure us over $1million in free air space for our TVC that was masterfully produce by Get George and created by Chris & Geoff.
This year, and every year since 2011, KPMG have graciously supported our organisation by completing our annual charity audit at minimal cost.
