Whether it’s keeping you properly informed about our works, offering a great day out at our reservoir sites or investing in the young people in our region, we've an important role to play.
We also support regional employment and skills development. We directly employ more than 5,200 people in our region and use over 900 regional suppliers. In 2012, we were named as one of the country’s top 100 apprenticeship employers, a position we aim to maintain in future.
We want to continue to make a positive difference in the communities we serve.By 2020 we would like to work in partnership with you to help save water and protect your sewers and drains from blockages, which can lead to flooding inside your property. We plan to expand our education programme to reach 125,000 customers every year by 2020.
In 2013 we launched Water Champions, a volunteering scheme which helps employees make a difference to schools in our region. We will also be improving and extending educational and visitor facilities at our key reservoir sites.
