Wessex Water Foundation

We donate more than £500,000 to community and environment-related projects every year.

What is the Wessex Water Foundation?

The Wessex Water Foundation provides funding to projects that strengthen communities and benefit the environment.

It has never been more important to both respond to the needs of our communities and make a firm commitment to support them now and in the 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 at least £500,000 are distributed through our Community Fund and Environment Fund every year.

Avonmouth Area Community Fund

Alongside the expansion of our Avonmouth water recycling centre, the Wessex Water Foundation will be supporting projects that aim to improve the lives of people in the local area.
