Offshore Weather Services is committed to contributing to the community by sponsoring organisations that support and promote health and safety, education, environment and community spirit.
OWS sponsors CareFlight Operations and Careflight Care Bears. These cute little bears keep a close eye on the OWS weather forecasters as they carry out their weather forecasting duties in the Melbourne forecasting office. Since these three little bears joined the staff at OWS other bears have been donated to children in hospitals and on helicopter flights and presented to them by the trained medical staff caring for them.
Mindful of the young children of staff members, the company has also been a long term supporter of the local Kid Smart and Street Smart Handbooks that are made freely available to Victorian school children to make them more aware of the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse and give general guidance in developing acceptable social skills.
The Australian Firefighters, Young Diggers (Australian Defence Force) and JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) are all currently supported by OWS.
