Hafren Dyfrdwy Community Fund
It’s really important to us to be right at the heart of our community, which is why we’re launching a £50,000 Community Fund, to support local projects and give back to our wonderful customers and communities.
How it will work and who can apply
From September 2021, non-profit organisations will be able to apply for between £2,000-£10,000 for new projects that aim to improve community wellbeing across the Hafren Dyfrdwy patch.
By this we mean:
- People: Projects that help people to lead a healthier life and gain new skills
- Places: Projects that help to create better places to live in and use
- Environment: Projects that will help look after our natural environment, give people greater access to that environment or help look after water
With favourability shown to projects that ideally lie within a ‘sweet spot’ that incorporates all three.
And of course, being a water company, naturally we’d love to see applications for projects that have a connection to water too (although not essential!). This might mean installing grey water recycling, creating sustainable drainage or developing water efficient green spaces.
Projects chosen by customers
Our Fund will be overseen by a panel made up of a mix of our wonderful customers and colleagues. The panel will review the strongest applications twice a year and have the final decision on where the money goes.
Both capital and revenue projects will be considered, as long as the project can evidence it will be sustained beyond our initial investment without reliance on future grants.
The proposed project must be located in the Hafren Dyfrdwy region and the community it is benefitting must be Hafren Dyfrdwy customers.
If you’re not sure if your project is eligible, you can check whether your project is in our region using WaterUK water supplier finder.
Register your interest
If you're involved in a local community project that would benefit from some financial support, applications will be open from September 2021.
In the meantime, you can register your interest now and a member of the team will be in touch with more details nearer the time.
