Building positive and lasting social and economic benefits in our Central Queensland communities

3 February 2022

When it comes to hard-working and dedicated volunteers, we think the communities surrounding our power generation assets are home to the cream of the crop! 

Our recent Stanwell Power Station Community Partnership Fund again highlighted how much energy and passion sits behind community organisations in our regions – and Stanwell is thrilled to be a part of their story.

Our SPS Community Partnership Fund panel, which includes key community leaders, locals and Stanwell representatives is excited to announce the successful applicants for our 2022 round of funding.

From installing critical water access infrastructure for our rural fire fighters to enhancing the facilities at Stanwell Hall with a fresh coat of paint, this year we supported a range of projects – check them out!

The seven successful applicants in the 2021/22 Stanwell Community Partnership Fund include:

The Fitzroy Rural Fire Brigade Group: funding for the group to upgrade water access facilities for their fire-fighting units during times of disaster.

Youth Aspirations for a brighter future: funding to bolster the scope of their youth programs by purchasing fitness equipment and a shade marquee. The group’s programs are designed to provide a relaxed and fun environment to connect with disengaged and disadvantaged youth with support and guidance.

Nerimbera Community Organisation (in partnership with Project Booyah Rockhampton): funding to provide an all-ability access toilet and shower facilities at the old school at the Nerimbera Community Hall, managed by Nerimbera Community Organisation. While undertaking the construction, the group will engage participants of Project Booyah to assist with the upgrades so they can gain valuable work experience and skills.

Golden Mount Shooters Association: funding to improve training facilities with the provision of a shade shed.  

Westwood State School P&C: funding to support the school in undertaking facility upgrades, including landscaping and a new paved area as part of its centennial celebrations this year.

Kalapa Hall and Sports Committee: funding to ensure the hall is equipped to continue hosting its annual calendar of events with the purchase of a new drinking water tank and a stand.  

Stanwell Progress Association: funding to enhance the look of the inside of the hall with a fresh coat of paint.  This upgrade will see the interior of the hall match the freshly painted exterior that Stanwell provided funding for in 2021.

We look forward to keeping you up to date as each group progresses its project!


For Stanwell, powering Queensland is about more than just providing electricity – it’s about empowering our communities in which we operate to be vibrant, prosperous, and inclusive. Congratulations to these seven community groups – we can’t wait to see you bring your projects to life.
