Community partnerships

Busselton Water has played a key role in our community for more than a century and is an active supporter of community activities. We value the work of our local charities and community groups so much that we have set up a special program to give them a helping hand when they need it most.

The annual Busselton Water Community Partnership program provides small grants to boost or kick-start local initiatives and is open to all volunteer groups, not-for-profit community organisations, social enterprises, clubs and schools in the Busselton area.

Organisations undertaking community projects in the areas of water quality and efficiency, environmental sustainability, education, innovation and leadership are particularly encouraged to apply.

Recent projects include:

  • Let’s Go Surfing Days at Bunker Bay to assist people with a disability have a go at surfing in a safe and dignified way
  • Vasse Primary School’s sustainable garden through the provision of a
    1,500-litre rain water tank, soil wetting agents, drip system reticulation, rain gauge and watering cans
  • Acting Up! Drama School through the provision of four year-long scholarships
  • SunSmart Busselton Jetty Swim 2017 and water stations on Busselton Wharf

For more information about the program telephone 08 9421 3600.
