Are you a confident Speaker, and passionate about transforming lives with clean water and good hygiene? Complete our online training to become a volunteer WaterAid Speaker and help inspire others with online talks and workshops.

Although social distancing measures are in place across the UK, our Speakers are still volunteering to help inform and inspire children and adults with  online talks about our vital work.

Clean water is vital for being able to maintain good hygiene and wash your hands, which is one of the best ways to protect yourself from the spread of illnesses like coronavirus.

If you would like to do something meaningful and worthwhile from your own home, take part in our online training and join the Speaker Network today to help us spread this important message!

You can also download our Speaker Network Impact Report 2019/20 (PDF), which showcases all the incredible achievements of our wonderful Speakers over the past year.

Everything you need to know

Our volunteer Speakers give inspiring talks and educational talks and workshops to schools, faith groups, service organisations, youth groups and more across the UK.

Bringing WaterAid’s work to life, we can educate people about the importance of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene in transforming people’s lives for good. Our Speakers inspire people to take action locally in support of our vital work.

To become a WaterAid Speaker, you should have a passion for WaterAid and public speaking. You’ll commit to giving 4 talks and/or educational workshops a year in your local community. In return you’ll receive training about public speaking and talking about the work of WaterAid, presentation resources, travel expenses, 1-2-1 support from WaterAid and a Speaker Mentor.
