Watermark awards

If your school is looking for a grant to create a wildlife pond, or you want to start an environmental project, you can apply for a Wessex Watermark award.

It helps all kinds of organisations to apply for financial help when carrying out projects throughout our region.

If you’re representing a school, parish council or community organisation and you have an environmental project in mind you could apply for a grant of up to £1,500.

And every three months a special project receives the Wessex Watermark gold award worth £2,500.

All the applications are considered by a panel of experts chaired by botanist, television presenter and Conservation Foundation co-founder David Bellamy.

Our leaflet has more information including an application form or please call 01225 526327 for more information.

Grid community awards

If you are in an area that is affected by our water supply grid programme and you have an environmental project that requires funding, you could be eligible for our grid community awards scheme.
