People & planet
While IKEA work’s on a global level to improve the lives of people in places like India and Pakistan, IKEA Rhodes also strives to be a good neighbour in our local community.
Here's how we're making a difference in our local community.

House with No Steps have been supporting people with a disability to live a good life as valued members of their community. The kitchen will be used to teach people with a disability valuable cooking and life skills.
Our DC (distribution team) team has refreshed rooms within these centres, providing patients; undergoing lengthy treatments; with a more comfy experience.
Our DC team also visited the children’s ward to give children toys in exchange for smiles and giggles!

The kitchen was sold in their AS-IS department where most of their display merchandise, discontinued products, overstocks and clearance items go before they find a new home. Not only did the kitchen go to a new home, the $2000 raised will help HeartKids help others.

IKEA Rhodes has been working in partnership with TAFE SWSi since 2010, giving local design students the opportunity to gain industry experience through a work placement program. In this new initiative designers were given the opportunity to compete for the grant by entering a competition whereby they produced a plan to redesign a corner of their home using the IKEA range. The top five entries have been on display at IKEA Rhodes since Monday 30 December for the public to vote on their favourite design.
We are pleased to announce that the winners of the IKEA Design Grant 2014, as voted by the public are:
1st Christina Brooks
2nd Sarah Reason
3rd Celine Huggins
Congratulations to all our winners from everyone at IKEA Rhodes.
