History was made at the annual Fremantle Business Awards held on Friday 9 June when Black Swan Health was announced as the recipient of the 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility award.

Making the night even more remarkable, a surprise donation was announced at the conclusion of the awards ceremony. Sea Corporation Managing Director and Owner Mr Craig Thompson pledged to donate $25,000 to Black Swan Health to support the positive impact that the organisations makes to the City of Fremantle. This generous contribution will significantly impact Black Swan Health’s plans to expand the Freo Street Doctor (FSD) service to reach an even greater number of disadvantaged people.

A large proportion of people who use FSD identify as homeless and 92% identify FSD as their primary source of health care. The reach and impact of the Freo Street Doctor is so iconic that in 2016 during a visit to Perth the Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) and Lady Cosgrove took time to visit the service and acknowledged the importance of Freo Street Doctor in supporting the local community.

Managing Director and CEO Ms Terina Grace said “this award has special meaning as it recognises the positive outcomes Black Swan Health are able to make to the local community”. She added “the far-reaching benefits our services affect not only our clients, but contribute to healthier communities at large”.

Black Swan Health are pleased to congratulate the Fremantle Foundation, a joint winner of the Corporate Social Responsibility Award. On receiving their award, Fremantle Foundation Executive Officer Mr Dylan Smith acknowledged the work of Black Swan Health’s Freo Street Doctor, stating that it was one of the services that inspired him to start the Foundation.
