Your Water is an online research community for Yorkshire Water customers.
By engaging with customers through the community, Yorkshire Water will be able to base major decisions on what customers want. Therefore, participants in the research will have the opportunity to shape the direction that Yorkshire Water takes over the next few years.
The community is expected to run until September 2018. Over the course of the community you will receive information about Yorkshire Water, and the water industry in general, which we would like you to read and consider.
As we progress through the community, Your Water members will be invited to participate in surveys, quick polls and discussions. All activities are optional â€“ you do not have to complete every activity that we send you and you will only be sent the activities which we think are most relevant to you.
The more feedback you give, the more rewards you will be eligible for and the greater say you will have in Yorkshire Waterâ€™s future decision making!
In addition to shaping the major decisions that Yorkshire Water take over the coming years, there are numerous other benefits to participating in the community.
Monthly prize draw - For each survey, discussion group and/or spot poll you complete, you will automatically receive at least one entry into our monthly cash prize draw, and a winner will be chosen at random to win a cash prize. Prize winners will be notified by email following each monthly prize draw. Monthly prizes are: Top prize of Â£25, 3 prizes of Â£15, and 6 prizes of Â£5 each month.
Charity contributions - For each of the larger surveys, Yorkshire Water will make a contribution of Â£1 per survey to WaterAid. By the end of the project this could result in total contributions from the community of up to Â£3,000! WaterAidâ€™s aim is a world where everyone everywhere has safe water, sanitation and hygiene. Currently 650 million people live without access to safe water and one in three do not have decent sanitary facilities. Yorkshire Water understand how essential safe water and sanitation are to human health. 'Safe water' is a key strand of our vision and whilst we are committed to providing these essential services for a growing population, we are also committed to supporting WaterAid and the work they do to help the poorest communities across the world.
A Journey Through Yorkshire - Youâ€™ll be rewarded for taking part in the community through our badge system. Youâ€™ll get badges for a range of different activities; discussion forums, uploading images, completing your profile and much much more. The badges you will build up on your profile will help you on your journey around Yorkshire. Can you collect all virtual badges and make it from Scarborough Beach all the way to York Minster?
