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.

Applications are now open.

Local groups in need of a helping hand are invited to apply to the Busselton Water Community Partnership Program.
