We donate more than £500,000 to community and environment-related projects every year.
Wessex Water Foundation
The Wessex Water Foundation funds projects that strengthen communities and benefit the environment, while also providing local groups and charities with volunteering support.
It has never been more important to both respond to the needs of our communities and make a firm commitment to support them for the long-term future, and the Wessex Water Foundation allows us to do just that!
The Foundation was launched in 2020 in partnership with the Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset and Quartet Community Foundations, which help to ensure our funding goes towards the communities that are in most need of support.
Grants totalling £500,000 are distributed through two separate funding streams: The Community Fund and The Environment Fund.

The Community Fund

In 2021, more than 60 groups benefited from £155,000 of funding from our Community Fund.
