Community investment made easy: Thames Water

Thames Water wanted to use a funding programme as a launchpad for greater impact. They wanted to engage more diverse communities with their funding programmes. Kicking off a JEDI (Justice, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion) programme with ActionFunder, they launched a fund targeted at supporting youth nature action in their supply locations. The results include £60k of funding distributed to these communities, 8 Community JEDIs created, and plenty of shareable content for Thames Water to use.
