Try Youth & Community Services creating jobs through home insulation

Try Youth & Community Services (TRY), a charity based on giving people opportunities to reach

their potential, is one of the not for profit organisations who are creating jobs through the

Federal Government’s Economic Stimulus Program. 

The Government is providing up to $1,200 worth of home ceiling insulation for eligible

households as part of the economic stimulus program.  TRY is a registered installer with the


“TRY has been installing insulation in Melbourne and the Gippsland region for the last few

months which has helped us to create 49 jobs for people who otherwise would have been out

of work” said Damian Mowlam CEO of TRY. 

“Because we are a not for profit organisation, all the money we receive goes back to creating

more jobs or providing services to our local community” he said. 

TRY provides a range of services including the management of kindergartens, childcare centres

and provides programs such as Big Brothers Big Sister of Melbourne, Kids Who Care, Kinder Kids

Australia and training and employment services. 

“We are competing in a very competitive environment in regards to getting jobs for home

insulation – we’re competing with private companies and new start up companies taking

advantage of the government rebate” said Helen Robinett, Chairman of TRY. 

“What’s important is that we’ve been around for 127 years and by choosing to use a not for

profit organisation, you are actually helping your local community” She said.
