Since 2013 Blue Water Energy has taken an active involvement in supporting local charities and community initiatives.
All of the charities we support have a direct link to someone in our team; we are therefore closer to the charities needs and their future plans and our understanding of this makes for a good partnership.
Currently supported charities are detailed below. Please take a look at their own websites to further understand the achievements and future plans of each.
