JFA Purple Orange is an independent, social-profit organisation that undertakes systemic policy analysis and advocacy across a range of issues affecting people living with disability and their families. It recently led a State-wide project to research and document the particular conditions for people living with disability which necessitate the high use of water in South Australia.

In the report, people provided provided insight into the disability they (or their family member live with), what they use the most water on, how their high use of water impacts on their lives, how they go about managing their water needs and identified what would be most helpful to them in assisting with high water needs.
JFA Purple Orange also notes the final report of the SA inquiry into water prices released in July 2019 and the urgent need to cut inflated household water bills for people living with high water needs.
