Help us to shape the future
Our Watermark awards supports organisations with their environmental projects based within the Wessex Water region.
Schools, parish councils, youth groups and community organisations are eligible to apply for grants of up to £1,500.
Every three months a special project receives the Wessex Watermark gold award worth £2,500.
All applications for Watermark awards are considered by a panel of experts chaired by botanist, television presenter and
Conservation Foundation co-founder David Bellamy.
The awards are open to research projects identified in local authority biodiversity action plans (BAP) or Wessex Water’s own BAP.
Organisations receiving an award over the last year included the Greater Bedminster Front Garden awards in Bristol. We provided a grant so organisers can promote sustainable gardening by sharing ways to save water and to use drought tolerant plants.
You can apply using the Watermark award leaflet (see related downloads).
If you are in an area that is affected by our water supply grid programme and you have an environmental project that requires funding, you could be eligible for our grid community awards scheme. Find out more.
