Austal is committed to helping the local communities in which we live and work. As part of this commitment to corporate social responsibility, Austal has established ‘Austal Giving’ – a platform for the company and its employees to provide assistance in various forms, to worthwhile community and charitable programs.

‘Austal Giving’ leverages our people and business’ natural capabilities to improve opportunities for employment, learning, health and wellbeing and the environment. Aligning with own corporate culture, Austal carefully considers and chooses to support programs and organisations that can demonstrate a high degree of operational efficiency – ensuring the delivery of maximum benefit to the targeted people in need.

Austal has established a dedicated Austal Giving Committee, chaired by the Chief Executive Officer to lead and manage support activities – and ensure Austal makes a real difference in our local communities.

Some of Austal Giving’s current and past projects These projects have and will continue to provide community benefit beyond the initial support period:

Austal supports Anglicare’s Young Hearts program which provides much-needed counselling support services to women and children who have suffered domestic violence in Rockingham, Western Australia.


Austal employees and Austal Giving support the great work of the Spinnaker Health Research Foundation through the long-running ‘Freo Doctor’ Lottery that raises funds for important medical research in a number of areas, including:

  • Maternal and infant health
  • Childhood disease and injury
  • Endocrine disorders including diabetes
  • Cancer and cancer treatments
  • Burn management and treatment
  • Inflammatory and rare diseases

  • Heart disease
  • Heart and lung transplant
  • rehabilitation and rehabilitation for improved recovery

austal Giving is again supporting Lifeline WA’s Lights for Lifeline campaign that is raising funds for the telephone counseling service – helping to prevent suicide and provide crisis support in our local community.

Sadly, the rate of suicide in Western Australia is rising and one Western Australian takes their own life every day. It is the leading cause of death for Western Australians between 15 and 44 years. And for every life lost too soon, many parents, children, siblings, friends and colleagues are left devastated.

Lifeline WA receives an increased demand for assistance over the holiday period from people throughout WA, coping with issues such as loneliness, financial hardship and family problems.
