Your event

Whether you plan to hold a five-a-side football tournament or a 'wine into water' evening, there will be legal and safety issues that you need to consider. WaterAid cannot take responsibility for any injury, losses or damage caused or sustained as a result of fundraising events held in aid of WaterAid. It is the responsibility of the event organiser to comply with legal and safety regulations. We've compiled some best practice guidelines to ensure that participants, guests and attendees enjoy a safe and fun event. 

Our online guide

Unfortunately, it is not possible for this guide to cover all eventualities, nor will all the questions be applicable to small events. However, we hope it will provide a good starting point.

What to do if things go wrong

Careful preparation and planning – and following our online guide – will help you organise a safe and successful event. In the unlikely event something does go wrong, keep a copy of your risk assessment and event safety checklist and make them available as required. 

For further information on event safety and legal issues please contact the WaterAid Events team at or call 020 7793 2232.

Good luck with your event!
