Working together

ConnectEd works with a number of government and non-government agencies, involved in developing education resources, providing referrals and consumer policy. Our major stakeholders include:

Government of South Australia

ConnectEd is funded by the Department of Human Services through its Affordable Living Strategy.

Program support is also provided by the Department of Energy and Mining through its Energy Advisory Service, which provides free independent information on a range of energy topics.


Energy Made Easy

The Energy Made Easy website provided by the Australian Energy Regulator, is an independent comparator website which compares all current energy plans from retailers offered in Australia. It also offers plenty of resources on utilities, energy contracts and the energy market.


Energy and Water Ombudsman of South Australia

The Energy and Water Ombudsman SA facilitates the prompt resolution of complaints and disputes between consumers of electricity, gas and water services and retailers by providing a free, independent, accessible, fair and informal service to consumers.



SACOSS is the South Australian Council of Social Service, the peak body for the non-government health and community services sector in South Australia. SACOSS advocates for vulnerable energy consumers and provides policy input to government on matters important to energy consumers.



The South Australian Financial Counsellors Association is the state-wide professional peak body for financial counsellors.

Financial counsellors assist South Australians in financial difficulty by providing information, support and advocacy for their clients. Their services are free, independent and confidential.
