Since the SUEZ Community Grants program began in 2014, we've been honoured to support over 100 inspiring organisations across Australia to create positive change for their communities and the environment.
It's amazing what people can do in their communities with a combination of passion, hard work and the right support. Take a look at some of our recent grant recipients and what they've been able to achieve.
A $15,000 SUEZ Community Grant has constructed environmentally friendly shade sails, made from recycled materials, over the Fernhill School's outdoor play areas. The sails give year-round protection from the sun's harmful UV rays, along with effective shading and ventilation to reduce temperatures in the warmer months.
Residents of Milton and surrounds are now benefiting from the suburb's first community garden thanks to a $10,000 SUEZ Community Grant. Accessible to the entire community, the garden provides fresh produce for all as well as an educational program for local students to learn about the social and environmental benefits of caring for and connecting with the natural environment.
Teacher, students and parents at Lockleys North Primary School have collected loose parts for the junior primary school students to play with and are currently stored in a shipping container. The grant aims to support the painting of the shipping container in a way that creates cultural community art that represents the nationalities of the community, students and First Australians.
