Request a speaker

Do you want to inspire your group and learn about clean water, decent toilets, hygiene and the transformative work of WaterAid?

Request a WaterAid Speaker to give an engaging free talk to your local group or school in the United Kingdom.

Please note that talks are only available in the UK. We require at least five weeks’ notice to find and confirm a volunteer Speaker for you. You cannot book a Speaker more than six months in advance.

Due to COVID-19 the WaterAid Speaker Network is offering virtual Speaker visits. We are currently unable to offer face to face visits for the time being, but you can request a face to face Speaker visit for later in the year or 2021; although this is provisional as we don’t have a confirmed date that we will re-start face to face visits.

Please take a look at the following online resources that may be useful for your group:
