As a compassionate company, Southern Water wants to do its bit to raise as much money as possible for good causes.

To ensure our charities get the most from our support, Southern Water targets its resources on two main relationships:

  1. A two year company-wide partnership with a single charity
  2. A year long partnership with selected regional charities to focus on local projects

The application process is open to all registered charities and Southern Water employees vote for their favourites. The finalists present to a charity committee consisting of representatives from each of our company directorates and our supply chain.

Two-year charity partner

Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust

Our company charity partner for 2016-18 is the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust (charity number 1021367). We are delighted to be supporting the crews and team with their lifesaving work, providing acute pre-hospital care to the most critically ill and injured people.

The Trust is an independent charitable healthcare provider, funded almost entirely by voluntary donations Southern Water will be working with the Trust to raise a target of £100k over two years.

Our employees are working with the Trust on challenges and collections as well as taking part with our supply chain in our fundraising events. Find out how we helped raise money for KSSAAT at our Bewl reservoir.
