Community Support

Kangaroo Island CommunityLink Program

SeaLink’s commitment to Kangaroo Island and its community spans over 30 years and we are passionate about its future.

Our extensive CommunityLink sponsorship program is focused on supporting local organisations, community groups and events that directly benefit the Kangaroo Island community and eco-based efforts for the recovery and ongoing viability of the island’s flora and fauna. Our support is primarily in the form of in-kind and discounted travel.

When can I apply for CommunityLink?

As part of SeaLink’s ongoing commitment, we now invite applicants from organisations and community groups to apply for sponsorship for the period 1 July 2024 to 30 June 2025.

Applications must be lodged via the form by 3 June 2024. Submissions lodged after this date via any method will not be considered.

Each year, we receive hundreds of requests for support from across a broad spectrum of the Kangaroo Island community. In the interest of fairness, each individual application will be carefully assessed against both the set of criteria outlined below, as well as the broader sum of applicants’ requirements. Please note we may be unable to grant all elements within an application.

We require all eligible applicants to submit their applications via this form by 11:59PM 3 June 2024.

Applications can be made at CommunityLink applications.

If you have any queries regarding a current application, please email [email protected]
