About us

Who we are

At Frank Water our mission is to alleviate global water poverty, enhance health, and protect the natural environment by improving the way that people understand and use water, with a focus on those most in need.


We’re two organisations that share a single vision of a global water system that can provide everyone, everywhere with access to enough, good-quality water to sustain their livelihoods, protect their health, and unlock their potential, which conserves the environment and, at the same time, maintains peace and political stability.


To achieve this vision, we work overseas and in the UK, via our registered charity (Frank Water Charity/Projects) and our social enterprise (Frank Water CIC). Our work is centered around Sustainable Development Goal 6 - providing access to safe water and sanitation for all by 2030.


Frank Water Charity raises funds to provide vulnerable communities overseas with long-term access to safe water, sanitation, and good hygiene. We partner with other leaders in the WASH sector to research and develop new technologies and practices and advocate for the change that’s needed for a water-secure world. In the UK, we educate and empower people to adopt a more sustainable approach to water. We also support brands and companies in developing their water stewardship programmes.


Frank Water CIC delivers various commercial services that not only raise funds to support our charitable programmes but also reinforce our mission to inspire the UK (and beyond) to value and protect the world’s most precious resource. We do this through our refill services, water coolers, and bottled spring water (in glass bottles only) encouraging individuals to consume less and reuse, recycle and refill more.

Our culture and values

Frank Water is a small team of predominantly part time staff based out of an environmental hub in central Bristol, where we like to get together at least once a week (we work remotely the rest of the week). We have a senior leadership team formed of our CEO, Head of Programmes, Head of Development and Head of Finance & Operations and a passionate team including a Fundraising & Communications Manager, Corporate Partnerships Manager, Commercial Manager, Programme & Funding Coordinator, Events & Communications Officer, and Finance & Admin Assistant. We also have some excellent colleagues based overseas, who support the management and delivery of our programmatic work.


Our Values


We aspire to be a positive force in people’s lives - We do what we do to improve the lives of those living in water poverty. Internally, we recognise the strengths of each team member and aim to make Frank Water a supportive and enjoyable place of work.


We protect and advocate for our planet’s future - We contribute to a water secure future for all, resilient to climate change, through systems change and encouraging sustainable use of natural resources.


We work in partnership with others - We approach our work with a collaborative mindset, seeking to pool existing strengths and expertise - be that in the international Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector, or here in our own office.


We focus on progress - We aren’t afraid to try new things - we don’t wait for others to pave the way. We strive for ever more effective ways of working and we learn from our mistakes. We build capacity to enable others and the wider sector to do more.


We are passionate about our purpose - Every member of our team is driven by our purpose and the positive change our work delivers - for doing the right thing at the right time, so that every day we are making small steps towards a better future.
