ECH has embarked on a number of highly successful partnerships with a range of local organisations, festivals and events.

The not-for-profit South Australian organisation’s investment in the arts supports part of its commitment to fostering social connections and embracing diversity and inclusivity.

ECH is proud to sponsor the Adelaide Festival, Feast Festival, State Theatre Company of South Australia, Adelaide Botanic Gardens and SANFL Walking Footy.

Walking Footy

Co-founded by SANFL and ECH, Walking Footy is a fun modified Australian Rules Football program created specifically for people aged 50 or over.

Played in teams of six people on a field the size of a basketball court, SANFL and ECH Walking Footy is designed to be a fun, inclusive and safe game with no running, tackling, or bumping involved.

SANFL and ECH Walking Footy is a great way to meet new people and incorporate exercise into your life in a social and fun way.

Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium (BGSH)

ECH has partnered with iconic Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium (BGSH) to work closely on their Health and Wellbeing program, with particular focus on Therapeutic Horticulture.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many people becoming more aware of how important it is to focus on our physical and mental health and wellbeing, and to care for the more vulnerable members around us.

Community gardening and engaging with nature has proven to be physically and psychologically beneficial and reduces the risk of social isolation.
