ActewAGL has a long, proud history of partnering with organisations who play key roles in our community. These partners are handpicked based on the way they uniquely enrich the capital region—stretching from local and professional sport, to iconic cultural events and organisations, our Powerhouse Partners are making a real impact.

Council On The Ageing.
A key community partner, the Council On The Ageing (COTA) works with older Canberrans to assist and empower them to participate and contribute to their fullest. ActewAGL and COTA have a strong partnership aimed at getting the capital region’s elderly population the right support, right when they need it.
The Enlighten Festival lights up the city every year and ActewAGL is proud to provide the energy behind the event. During the opening ceremony, ActewAGL performs the headlining ‘switch on’ moment—officially turning on the festival lights. This partnership continues to be a highlight of the Canberra calendar of events and a hub of innovation and community with local businesses, performers and artists coming together to enrich the capital’s cultural offerings.
Menslink empowers young men in the capital region to get through tough times, safely. In recent years, Menslink have seen a sharp incline in the number of requests for help from young locals and their families, as the effects of COVID-19, including lockdowns, home-learning and job losses are felt.
University of Canberra Capitals.
ActewAGL is the major sponsor of the UC Capitals and has been a steadfast supporter of the capital region’s most successful professional sporting team. Together, we delivered the first crowd-sourced lightshow in the WNBL, which saw attendees experience a concert-esque, pre-game slideshow on their mobile devices while their phone’s flashlight synced with the music.
