COVID-19 campaign

In October 2020, we launched a digital campaign targeted at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, to increase awareness of the support available during COVID-19. Learn more about the campaign and download campaign materials.

Background

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders can be particularly disadvantaged when it comes to energy and water and the most common complaints we receive relate to billing and affordability.

With government support payments decreasing in the coming months, we want to remind customers of the extra support that is available to help with billing issues.

To create the campaign we teamed up with our Aboriginal ambassador, comedian Sean Choolburra, who recently worked on our Mob Matters campaign.

Key campaign messages

  • If customers are impacted by COVID-19, they should contact their energy or water retailer for support. If they can’t help, then EWON can.
  • There is extra support available to energy and water customers during this time

Social media posts and images

All of our Facebook and Instagram ads can be downloaded via Dropbox. Below are suggested social media posts you are welcome to use to support the campaign. All of the ads direct people to our COVID-19 support page.
