MACA has continued its partnership with Murlpirrmarra Connection, a not-for-profit organisation that provides education and sustainable employment opportunities for Aboriginal youth in remote Western Australia communities.
The organisation is committed to ensuring each child is supported through their impressionable years and beyond, from education, community sports, and health programs, to wider family network assistance.
Since its establishment in 2010, the Murlpirrmarra Connection has assisted 128 students through primary and secondary school, tertiary studies, and early employment, with a 92% school attendance rate and one in five graduate success.

MACA is a proud partner of Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation (PCHF) supporting world-class health care for sick children and their families across Western Australia.
Since 1998, the Foundation has assisted Perth hospitals to conduct life-changing research, provide ongoing training for clinicians, and integrate advanced health care technology into everyday practice.
The MACA Paediatric Simulation Education Fellowship is the only program in WA that provides medical professionals the opportunity to improve their clinical practice, without risk, through realistic, high-pressure situations in a simulated environment. This helps doctors prepare for any possibility.
More recently, we have supported the Foundation in creating an intricate neonatal transport unit, fit with Criticool technology, to safely transport premature babies.
We know that the value of supporting children’s health from an early age is vital, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with the Foundation to improve the long-term health of our community.

Each Year, MACA is proud to be a team sponsor in the Hawaiian Ride for Youth, which is a 700km ride from Albany or Jurien Bay to Perth. In support of the Ride, MACA also hosts yearly Ride for Youth Breakfasts, which attracts over 400 guests and attendees.
On their journey, the riders stop at high schools to engage with students in the issues of youth suicide, depression and anxiety and offer the services of Youth Focus. The riders also have an opportunity to share their personal stories with the students.
The funds raised from the breakfast and event play a crucial role in helping young people receive vital mental health counselling, whilst at the same time raising community awareness of mental health and reducing its associated stigma.

Since inception, the program has facilitated the placement of two undergraduate engineers to work on our major projects in Victoria.
Regional Manager Civil and Infrastructure (Victoria) Mark O’Reilly said MACA welcomes team players from diverse backgrounds with the right attitude.
“As part of the MACA team, the efforts and contributions of these individuals have positively affected our workplace, and their personal development through on-the-job training will bolster our capability into the future.
