Community Involvement

Seacorp's commitment to making a positive difference in the Western Australian community is shown in our support of community initiatives and activities.

Since our inception in 1998 we have embraced a culture of giving back to the communities we service and return a greater proportion of earnings than our larger multi-national competition.

Seacorp, on behalf of Craig and Rosemary Thompson, has established the named fund Luke Thompson Legacy (LTL), in loving memory of Craig and Rosemary’s youngest son Luke Anzac Thompson who sadly passed away in early 2019 at the tender age of 17 years.

Seacorp have partnered with the charity zero2hero to establish a mental health style retreat in Denmark, Western Australia which will target youth and young adults whom are confronting a relationship breakdown. 

Research indicates that males going through a relationship breakdown, particularly young men between 15 – 24 years, are at the greatest risk of suicide.  The aim of the retreat is to fill the gap in Western Australia’s mental health system which currently has no facilities focusing on this alarming issue.

The retreat  will aim to provide the attendees with an escape from their day to day lives in a rural setting, encouraging them to help out on the property whilst receiving medical and counselling services via a holistic approach. 

Seacorp and LTL have committed to providing the infrastructure and upkeep required for the retreat whilst the management of the facility will be undertaken by zero2hero.   One of the key components to the project’s success will be the support of relevant government organisations including but not limited to the Department of Health and State and Federal Governments.

It is our intention to have the retreat up and running by late 2020/early 2021.

Zero 2 Hero Logo
zero2hero is a Western Australian based charity dedicated to increasing the understanding of mental health issues and the awareness of mental health services among children and young people through innovative programs, events and education.  Their aim is to equip young people with the skills to speak up when they are struggling and the confidence to stand up and support their friends when they may be experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, bullying, self harm or suicidal thoughts.

zero2hero envision a world where every child and young person is educated and empowered to effectively deal with mental health issues, and mental illness is dealt with openly and treated as a normal part of everyday life.  They believe that through communication, mental health problems can be effectively dealt with and suicide can be prevented.

GenerationOne
As a promoter of equal opportunities, Seacorp supports the GenerationOne mission of creating sustainable jobs for Indigenous Australians.

The Australian Employment Covenant (AEC) began in 2008 as a national industry-led initiative aimed at securing the commitment of 50,000 sustained jobs for Indigenous Australians. The AEC combined forces with GenerationOne at the end of 2012 to ensure these job opportunities became a successful reality. 

To date 62,000 employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians have been secured.

Seacorp is excited for the positive change that the biggest employer collaboration in our nation's history will bring to our Indigenous community.

Our partnership has seen the establishment of the Seacorp Fund which is targeted to provide various initiatives to support and improve men’s mental health and well-being.

 

Black Swan Logo

In keeping with Seacorp's commitment to support the well-being of the Fremantle community we have partnered with Black Swan Health, an independent not-for-profit company providing high quality primary and mental health services that achieve positive health outcomes for the community.

Black Swan provide the iconic Freo Street Doctor program, a mobile medical health service that provides a visible, easily accessible and non-judgemental primary health care service to marginalised, disadvantaged and homeless people in our community.

The service provides over 2000 consultations annually with over 20% of patients visiting the Freo Street Doctor identifying as homeless and nearly 45% of patients self-identifying as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.
