Helping support the Everyone, Everywhere campaign
We're pleased to support WaterAid in their charity partnership with The Scout Association.
We’re delighted that ‘A Million Hands’ will help mobilise half a million Scouts in supporting the Everyone, Everywhere campaign to ensure everyone, everywhere has access to clean water and sanitation.
We’d like to encourage all the Scouts in Yorkshire to work together on this important issue and we’ve provided some information below on how we can support you:
Take a look at our Big Wish youth engagement programme. There’s an activity plan, powerpoint presentations, fundraising activities, paying in forms and money box templates to help you on your way. There’s something for everyone whether it be Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Explorers.
Have a look at our schools resources, download some posters, do the water audit in our Green classroom activity booklet, or learn about poo power!

Whilst the programme is aimed at schools, those Scout Groups wanting a big challenge could certainly sign up for this one!Commit to raising over £1000 for Ethiopia with our partnerships programme.

We offer a free speakers service which is delivered by volunteers across the business. Talks can cover the work of Yorkshire Water, or WaterAid & our Big Wish campaign. You can request a speaker using the request form on our Big Wish page.
Our educational visits programme is aimed at schools and therefore we don’t generally offer free sessions for group visits during the evening, at weekends or during the holidays.
Sessions can be arranged at our sites at Headingley Water Treatment Works (Leeds) and Esholt Waste Water Treatment Works (Bradford) but there would be a charge to cover staff costs. To make enquiries please contact our Education Team.
Why not order a FREE water saving pack and you could shave money off the utility bill for your Scout hut, community centre or church.
If you’re doing activities on water usage, why not encourage your friends and family to order a pack and also check out our top tips for saving water.
Coffee mornings are a great way to get together with your community. This could also be an opportunity to encourage others to sign up for a FREE water saving pack which includes clever devices to help you save money in your home.
Everyone needs their car washing – why not tell people about the importance of saving water by having a Car Wash using buckets and not water hoses? Ask for a donation to WaterAid for this great service and see how much you can raise!
