Thompson Shipping Group’s (TSG's) commitment to making a positive difference in the Western Australian community is shown in our support of community initiatives and activities through our subsidiary Seacorp. We take great pride in our sponsorships and are committed to ensuring that our communities, particularly our youngest members, have an opportunity to realise their full potential.
TSG has embraced a culture of generously giving back to the communities in which we operate 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.
Together with Seacorp, LTL are proud major sponsors of zero2hero, Fremantle Street Doctor and St Patrick's Community Support Centre.
Seacorp is a proud and major sponsor of zero2hero who are 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.
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.
Seacorp is a proud partner with the Fremantle Foundation.
The foundation provides philanthropic advice and administration to individuals, families and businesses who are interested in giving effectively in their community. They combine their knowledge of charitable operations with the donor's interests to help support important local issues.
Through effective giving, the Fremantle Foundation allows donors to make a lasting impact, both during and after their lifetime.
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.
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.
Seacorp proudly support St Patrick’s Community Support Centre who have evolved from a simple meals service to one of Western Australia’s leading not-for-profit organisations helping the homeless.
For more than 40 years St Patrick’s has worked to provide immediate and holistic care for the homeless, those at risk of being homeless and the disadvantaged in Fremantle and surrounding areas. Their primary aim is to promote social inclusion and self-worth whilst helping people return to independent living, a safe environment and a better quality of life.
