There are 30 local groups around the country who raise funds and campaign for us. You can find your nearest one here, or to set up your own WaterAid group in your area, please contact us. Local Groups are getting behind our Big History Project and helping us mark 150 years since the first modern sewer opened in the UK by discovering the history of taps and toilets near you – so we can secure the same change around the world.
