Wessex Water Foundation

Wessex Water Foundation

The Wessex Water Foundation provides funding for projects which bring people together to build stronger communities.

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.

Launched in 2020 and run in partnership with the Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset and Quartet Community Foundation, this fund provides grants to projects across the Wessex Water region, totalling at least £500,000 per year.

Funding available in 2021

We are pleased to announce two funds that will support our communities during 2021:

  • The Environment Fund
  • The Community Fund.

Please find more information about each fund and how to apply below.

The Environment Fund

The Environment Fund supports charitable and community activities that improve their local environment and have a positive impact on the quality of life for the local area.

The Community Fund

The Community Fund supports charitable and community activities that aim to improve the lives of local people by working to build stronger communities and bring communities together.

Future investment in communities

From 2021 our new fund will provide at least £500,000 of funding every year to local communities. The fund will enable us to continue investing in strengthening communities and local environments.

Part of this will involve continued funding for local groups, supporting debt advice organisations and charities dealing with those affected by poverty, mental and physical health issues, hunger, housing problems and unemployment.

We also recognise the need to ensure all investment meets equality, diversity and fairness standards.
