Our Society Promise...

Read on to see how we aim to work with Society and what we want to deliver. 

Our Society Promise

Yorkshire Water has a vision to Take Responsibility For The Water Environment For Good. As a part of Yorkshire Water, we want to help them achieve this and aimed to make it relevant to us and our team. As a result we have developed our Society Promise.

To us, society has a broad meaning. It is about where we live. It is about how we interact with and the impact we have upon the communities and environment around us. It is about actively participating in projects, big or small, to ensure we have a positive output on someone or something.

We strive to display role model behaviour when it comes to protecting our colleagues and customers, the environment and the resources we use.

To ensure we all make a difference in SafeMove over the coming 12 months we promise to:

  • Raise money for the charity or charities that have a special connection with our staff, customers or suppliers
  • Support our team in spending a day away from their normal activities working on a volunteering project of their choice
  • Minimise the impact of our day to day activities on the environment 

These are three simple steps which we believe will make a difference to the society around us. We will let you know how we are doing as the year progresses and seek your views on how you can help. 

Here are some of the things we have been up to in the last 12 months .....

  • Gardening at the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford
  • Fundraising for our charity of the year, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, with a Wear it Yellow day and cake sale
  • Raffle of wonderful prizes
  • Food hampers for food banks across Yorkshire in December

In the year 2015/2016 our team raised a massive £1,699 for charities and good causes - the target we set ourselves was £1,000.

It is a wonderful amount of money to raise for a team our size and we are very proud. We have set ourselves a slightly higher target of fundraising £1,200 in 2016/2017. Wish us luck!

We have now raised £12,110 since we began fundraising in 2007. Of which £5,376 has been for the YAA.
