Engaging with our community
The desire to bring a positive difference is a theme throughout Serco across the globe.
Serco’s team at Fiona Stanley Hospital has already made a significant contribution to charitable organisations through corporate sponsorship and our employees’ generous donation of their time and finances towards charities they are passionate about.

Our team at Fiona Stanley Hospital is part of the local community. We are proud to have helped local community groups to flourish and grow since the launch of our community sponsorship program in 2013.
Each year, we provide a number of sponsorships for initiatives or programs related to health or healthy lifestyles within the Melville, Cockburn, Kwinana, Rockingham, Canning or Fremantle local authority areas.

Fiona Stanley Hospital Serco team corporate responsibility support program
We have regular opportunities for staff to participate in corporate responsibility activities but we also want to support individual employees who participate in charitable endeavours. To help with this we have implemented a corporate responsibility support program for staff, whereby ten members of staff each year can apply for charitable donations of up to $250 each to boost their own funds raised.

To make it easier for our employees to contribute time to their communities, Serco provides two days paid leave per year for employees to volunteer for causes and organisations that matter to them.
