Our community partnerships

When we talk about good energy at Origin, we mean more than what we send via pipes and wires.

We're working with communities across Australia, with a big focus on empowering kids through education, sport and creativity.

Here's what we're doing right now.


We believe in the power of Aussie kids


The power of sport

In early 2020, we announced our new partnership with Netball Australia. We're joining forces with netball at all levels – from your local side right up to the national level. Look out for the Origin Diamonds!

Netball Australia works tirelessly to bring more opportunities for young people in sport, particularly young girls and women. We're excited to be part of the team, and do our bit to help communities thrive.

The power of creativity

In 2014, we instigated littleBIGidea - the Australia wide competition that's become a big part of our annual planning.

Every year, we invite Australian kids in Years 3-8 to come up with an idea or invention that can make a difference in people’s lives.

Twelve kids get shortlisted to work with industry mentors to develop their ideas further. The judges ultimately select a final three winners – who in previous years have been sent on an all-expenses-paid trip to NASA!

The power of education

The Origin Foundation was established in 2010. The Foundation supports programs that use education to help break the cycle of disadvantage, and empower young Australians to reach their potential.

We do this through a grant program, through capacity-building for the non-profit sector, through a time-volunteer program and via Origin-matched giving.
