Environment Agency

Environment Agency employees have been supporting WaterAid's mission to transform lives by improving access to safe water, taps and toilets in some of the world's poorest communities for 20 years, with support growing every year.

Employees from the Environment Agency have helped spread the importance of WaterAid’s work throughout England. More than 20 employees take part in WaterAid’s Speaker Network, giving talks to schools, churches, and community groups to raise awareness of our work and encourage fundraising activities.
