RSP Member - Wessex Water

Wessex Water are a regional water and sewerage business serving 2.8 million customers across the south west of England including Dorset, Somerset, Bristol, most of Wiltshire and parts of Gloucestershire and Hampshire.

The Bristol and Bath area in the north west has a population of around 750,000 and in the south east the Bournemouth and Poole area has about 300,000 residents.

The region’s landscape is varied, ranging from the Mendip Hills and the levels of Somerset to the cliffs of Dorset and Wiltshire’s Salisbury Plain. The two coastlines have a number of popular holiday resorts such as Weston super Mare and Minehead on the north coast and Bournemouth, Poole and Weymouth on the south coast.

At Wessex Water we are better equipped than ever to identify, reach and support people in vulnerable circumstances. And the number is growing. That means the requirement for and the pressure on our services will grow enormously. We are aware that many customers in our region are rurally isolated, many digitally isolated and potentially in vulnerable circumstances this could be financially or due to age, ill health, a disability, mental illness or additional needs. We work in partnership with a range of organisations to support customers who need it most.
