Exciting news…our brand new Community Fund has launched!

We’ve committed to giving more than £10 million over the next five years to fund worthy projects across the Severn Trent region, to make a real difference in the communities we serve.

The fund is focused on improving community wellbeing through three key elements:

  • People – projects that facilitate healthier lifestyles and skills development
  • Place – projects that create better places to live and use
  • Environment – projects that facilitate a healthier natural environment, greater access to that environment or that support the preservation of water

And of course, being a water company, naturally we’d love to see applications for projects that have a connection to water too – this might mean creating sustainable drainage, installing grey water recycling or creating water efficient green spaces.

Applications are now open via our website http://www.stwater.co.uk/communityfund

Our independent Community Fund Customer Panel made up for Severn Trent customers will review applications on a quarterly basis and decide where the money goes. They will meet for the first time in March and we’ll start giving out our first grants in April 2020.
