Case study – Melbourne Water

Melbourne Water’s vision is “Enhancing Life and Liveability” and we aim to improve the quality of life and prosperity of the region by providing safe, secure and reliable water services and sewage removal.

As a founding member, Melbourne Water has supported WaterAid Australia since it was established in 2003. This support includes a yearly donation through a corporate membership, as well as providing our people with the opportunity to support the charity through payroll giving and volunteering their time and energy to help organise a number of fundraising events including the Victorian WaterAid Ball. This strong partnership is enhanced through regular project updates from WaterAid’s Melbourne team, who have come along to support our fundraising meetings and engaged our staff through informative presentations.

The work of WaterAid in enabling the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water and sanitation resonates well with the values and work of our organisation and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership to support this important cause.

Our Corporate Relations Manager helps support our partner companies to develop their business by:

  • inspiring and motivating staff 
  • facilitating employee learning, skills and development
  • contributing to the career development of individual employees 
  • broadening cross-company working by bringing teams together on fundraising projects
  • developing new relationships across the sector through social and networking events

In addition to this, the water industry has helped engage their customers by distributing WaterAid information in around 2.5 million water bills each year. This is a clear demonstration of the strength of their commitment to helping some of the world's poorest communities.
