partnerships

Around 50% of the Arc Infrastructure team live and work in regional WA. We are part of regional Western Australian communities and want our involvement to be long-lasting, meaningful and positive.

We achieve this by collaborating with grassroots and charitable organisations to deliver practical programs that address the unique needs of their communities.

Some of our major partnerships include:

Constable Care Foundation

Arc Infrastructure is proud to be a Foundation Partner of the Constable Care Safety School, WA’s first experiential road and transport safety centre.

As a Foundation Partner, we have made a significant funding commitment to the building and operation of the school. We also donated, modified and installed rail and signalling equipment to create a scaled down version of a functioning level crossing as part of the rail safety element of the site.

Aimed at children from 4-11 years, the school is modelled on Perth’s streets, including model heritage buildings, a working rail platform, pedestrian and level crossings, and traffic lights and intersections.

The innovative space provides a realistic urban environment where children can practice road, rail and public transport safety skills.

Hawaiian Ride for Youth

Arc Infrastructure has been a team sponsor of the Hawaiian Ride for Youth since 2015.

The Ride is an annual 4.5 day cycling event covering over 2,000 kilometres from Albany to Perth to fundraise for not-for-profit organisation Youth Focus, which provides free and ongoing mental health services to young people across Western Australia.

With many of our own employees living and working in regional Western Australia, we understand how important the provision of mental health services can be, especially for those who are most vulnerable.

In 2022 Arc Infrastructure will be entering three employees, and our riders hope to raise even more for the cause.

Foodbank WA

Arc Infrastructure will be providing ongoing support to Foodbank WA over the next three years to deliver benefits to multiple communities in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt region.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Foodbank WA identified a gap in the services being delivered in the Wheatbelt and saw an opportunity to potentially expand the food and groceries being provided to locals struggling to put food on the table.

Arc kicked off the long-term partnership by funding critical food relief needs assessment research in the Wheatbelt that has provided recommendations on how Foodbank WA can best help those experiencing food insecurity in the area.

Deliveries have now commenced to Wyalkatchem for a six-month trial period to establish the best process for creating food provision distribution hubs in the region.

Lifeline WA

Arc Infrastructure is delighted that following our $30,000 Christmas donation to Lifeline WA in December 2020, we are continuing our support of this important cause to address the stigma around mental health and help prevent suicide in regional Western Australia. 
  
Each year, Arc's support will fund the training and ongoing support of 12 highly skilled Lifeline WA Telephone Crisis Support Volunteers and the delivery of 12 safeTALK sessions in our communities.

Lifeline’s amazing Telephone Crisis Support Volunteers listen to callers without judgment and work with them to explore their options for support. Telephone crisis supporters undergo almost 180 hours of training over 12 months to enable them to answer calls. The training ensures volunteers are qualified to provide people in need of support with a safe space to discuss their needs, worries or concerns.
 
SafeTALK sessions are half-day workshops that expand the reach of suicide intervention skills by teaching attendees how to identify someone at risk and link them to life-saving resources. Lifeline is planning to organise this Arc Infrastructure supported training in regional locations around the State’s freight rail network.
