Communities

We strengthen our communities through local investment, educational programmes and volunteering.

VoluntersWe’re not just about pipes. We’re also about people.

We’re a highly visible service provider in the North West, working in the heart of local communities. We try to be a good neighbour, and give something back whenever we can.

Our volunteering activities are an essential part of a wider programme of community investment, which totalled £1.8 million in 2015/16.

Our schools programme delivers water efficiency workshops in primary schools to get children thinking about the water cycle, how water is treated and delivered, and the perils of flushing the wrong things down the loo!

We raise money for our official charity partner, the North West Air Ambulance, through a wide range of fundraising activities – from cake sales to ballroom dancing.

Many thousands of customers made use of the access land around our reservoirs, for walks and recreation. To keep the public safe, we continued with a hard-hitting campaign to dissuade people from swimming in our reservoirs.

In all these ways, we used our expertise and the energy of our employees to make a positive difference to the communities we serve.
