The External Relationships Team

The External Relationships Team are here to support customers with Affordability Schemes and the Priority Services Register.  The team is made up of several coordinators who are responsible for building solid partnerships, and community outreach work supporting customers face to face.

Helping our community

The External Relationships Team work to support customers by connecting with individuals at community events. 

We work with many organisations including community groups, job centres, charities, housing associations and local councils. 

This helps us identify and engage with customers who need the most support. 

What we do:

Our community calendar

Find an event at a time and place that suits you. You can meet us at:

Community events

We'll attend events across our region.  

We want to engage with as many customers as we can and support those who need help the most.  

We will be able to offer direct support to our customers and raise awareness of our affordability schemes.  

We will provide leaflets as well as Severn Trent goodies, which are all free.

Talks

We can also deliver talks to organisations and our customers.  

These sessions are an opportunity for you to have more time to discuss your questions and concerns.  

We'll provide organisations with training packs which they can refer to and a selection of leaflets for our customers.

Drop-in sessions

We can attend drop-in sessions in your area and work with you to provide the best outcome for our customers.  

Over the years we’ve attended various community hubs and centres.  

Get in touch if you would like us to visit and host a drop-in session somewhere in your community. We’d be happy to arrange something with you. 

Assist with completing applications

Some of our customers find it difficult to fill out forms and just need some help, guidance or reassurance while completing applications. 

In exceptional circumstances, we can support customers who need a helping hand with applying for Severn Trent affordability schemes.

 

Set up a referral process

If your organisation knows of somebody who could use our help, you can refer them to us. We’ll work with them to create a support package which meets their needs.

If you are aware of anyone who needs assistance, we can work with you to create a smooth referral process.

Case Studies

Read some of our exciting case studies.

Partnership work

Our team work very closely with local authorities across the region including Housing Associations and Councils.

We want to ensure we are reaching out to our customers by proactively increasing awareness of our customer assistance schemes along with services your organisation offer. We do this by sharing service needs.

We can promote by letter, email and text and we will share results. Joint mailshots have proven to be a very successful way we can support you in reducing debts for our customers.

There’s a variety of activities we can support you with and what is great is all our services are completely free!
