WaterAid relies on the dedicated support of a wide range of organisations and community groups who contribute to WaterAid and help to save lives.  If you already belong to an organisation and wish to see what they have been doing to help WaterAid then scroll down and have a look.

Or, if you want to help WaterAid but are simply stuck for ideas then have a look around the site to find out more about how some community groups are helping WaterAid to bring safe water to some of the world’s poorest people.

WaterAid publishes a bi-annual fundraising newsletter, On Tap, which contains forthcoming events, ideas and  reports from our fundraising around the UK.  Click here to read the latest edition.

At WaterAid we are always delighted to hear about new groups or new ideas so if you are keen to get involved drop us a line at community@wateraid.org

It can cost as little as $25 to provide a person with safe water, adequate sanitation and knowledge of good hygiene practices, so every little bit helps and can make a real difference to someone’s future.  What’s more we are always willing to help you set up a fund-raising event and we have lots of useful tips, advice and resources to help your event make a real splash.  To find out more visit our fundraising resources or have a look at how the groups below are helping WaterAid.
