We provide support and opportunities for local communities throughout the Pilbara region
We believe in being here for local communities.
We don’t believe in winning at all costs – we believe in win-win thinking, so that everyone can benefit from our presence in the Pilbara. We support local communities in a number of areas, including education & youth support, health, economic development, environment, arts & culture, social welfare & aid and emergency relief.
Atlas Helping Hands
