Community

Welcome to our community section!

Your community is our community because the vast majority of Southern Water employees live and work in the region. Like you we are committed to improving life in Hampshire, Sussex, Kent and the Isle of Wight – and protecting the unique environment and its resources.

It’s our job to provide essential water and wastewater services to 4.5 million people across the South East. But we know that sometimes our operations can affect communities and so we try to give something back and make a positive contribution to life in our area.

We support charities and community groups

Southern Water encourages its employees to support charities in many ways:

  • Charity partnerships
  • Community grants available in some of the areas affected by our operations
  • Company volunteering scheme
  • Road show and customer events. 

Helping schools

We are working with schools and other groups to make sure our children are water savvy and top of the class when to comes to knowing the value of their water. We work with our partners to provide:

  • Fun school programmes to promote healthy lifestyles and awareness of the aquatic environment
  • Learn to Swim and Swim Safe to keep kids safe in and around water
  • Free Waterwise and Sewerwise talks.

Water for schools

Water is vital for a healthy lifestyle, better concentration and happy learning. We provide water bottles for schools and other youth groups at a discounted rate.


These are just some of our current partners:
