The Illawarra region of NSW is home to a significant part of BlueScope Steel's business, including the Port Kembla Steelworks and the Springhill Works.
The Company provides substantial support to the local community through a range of community partnerships, which are targeted mainly towards young people, education, arts and culture.
Significant community partnerships in 2004/2005 included the Illawarra Academy of Sport, the Southern Stars Schools Spectacular, the Rotary Youth Driver Awareness project, a Neighbourhood Schools Program and BlueScope Steel's Growing Great Gardens project, which incorporates a schools environmental training program and the Port Kembla Steelworks' Site Improvement Project.
The Company continues to support the BlueScope Steel Youth Orchestra, Illawarra Community Radio and the region's Surf Life Saving branches (see Case Studies below).
In addition to its community partnerships program in the Illawarra, BlueScope Steel also provides one-off donations to a range of local community groups, events and causes.
