Supporting communities

The new Wessex Water Community fund will support community cohesion and organisations promoting the use of water to build stronger communities.

Funding of up to £1,500 will be available for groups working to build cohesion and bring communities together.

Priority will be given to applications from groups:

  • working in areas of financial deprivation or rural isolation
  • raising awareness of drinking water for healthy living
  • promoting water saving initiatives.

Wessex Water will be working in partnership with the four community foundations across our region who are well placed to understand and address need through making grants in their local areas.

Here are the contact details and application open dates for each of the community foundations. For more details in Dorset, contact Dorset Community Foundation, which opens for applications on 7 January 2019. Telephone 01202 670815.
