Royal Flying Doctor Service

Every day the Royal Flying Doctor Service takes the finest care to the furthest corners of Australia so that anyone who lives, works or travels in remote and rural Australia can enjoy the best of health.  Using the latest in aviation, medical and communications technology, delivered by a dedicated team of professionals, the RFDS delivers both 24-hour emergency services and everyday essential health care throughout Australia.
On a daily basis, the RFDS conducts the aeromedical evacuation of 15 critically-ill or injured patients in South Australia alone - over 100 flights across Australia every day.

Beach is a corporate partner of the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Central Operations and our people have needed their services on more than one occasion.  It is a huge comfort to both our staff and their families that they are able to access the highest quality medical care, no matter where they are.  Beach’s financial support benefits the RFDS capital-raising program for the replacement of its flying intensive care units - at a cost of more than $6 million each.

SA Museum

The foundation of Beach Energy’s long standing partnership with the South Australian Museum reflects a common interest to promote science as evidenced by the programs that Beach has been proud to support.  Beach sponsors the Museum’s Out of the Glass Case and Night Lab initiatives.  Out of the Glass Case represents an unparalleled outreach program among Australian museums. With consistent visitation since 2003, Museum staff have travelled across the State, providing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM-based) educational opportunities to those who might not otherwise have readily available access to the Museum.  Out of the Glass Case brings the Museum and its learning to rural and remote communities, as well as to vibrant key State events including WOMADelaide and Science Week.  Since 2010, the Museum has taken key artefacts and items to members of communities located in the APY lands and other parts of South Australia annually to share knowledge and to create meaningful opportunities for young people across our community.  NightLab is an innovative evening program designed to capture the imagination of visitors.  The events are run quarterly and foster a deeper understanding of the Museum and what it has to offer while allowing guests to connect with peers.

Zoos SA Beach Energy is proud to sponsor Zoos SA and their exciting new educational initiative.  Zoos SA are developing a mobile phone application that features the use and roll out of Bluetooth beacons across Adelaide Zoo. The use of the Beacon technology is considered to be the next generation of mobile technology and Zoos SA are proud to be the first Zoo in Australia to be implementing this technology. The beacons provide location-based information that it delivers to visitors as they move around the site. This enables users to receive information that is relevant to them and the location in which the beacon is placed. Beacon technology is exciting and can generate an enhanced visitor experience which will help Zoos SA to achieve their mission to save species from extinction and connect people with nature.

Netball SA and
Adelaide Thunderbirds

Beach sponsors the 3 Umpires Course which is aimed at increasing the number of new umpires to netball. It enables school students, junior or senior netballers, coaches, spectators and new or inexperienced umpires the opportunity to understand the basic components of netball umpiring. The course includes both practical activities and drills with the inclusion of group work to assist with the theoretical learning.  In the past six years the course has been presented to more than 11,000 participants in metropolitan and regional areas.
