Community Partnerships Program

For over 20 years, we have supported a wide range of programs, organisations and events across South Australia.  Our Community Partnerships Program, launched in 2018, is focused on grassroots community events and programs run by not-for-profit organisations. The programs and events that we support have a clear link to water use and our vision of delivering world class water services for a better life.
