About the fund

Western Power Distribution (WPD) distributes electricity to 8 million customers across an area covering the Midlands, South Wales and South West.  As the largest electricity Distribution Network Operator in the UK, WPD is committed to supporting the communities it serves and its local environment. 

Over the next five years, as part of this long-term commitment to its communities, WPD has promised to deliver a shareholder-funded, annual £1m support fund for local community initiatives and good causes. The  Community Matters funding programme builds on the £1 million Covid response fund it delivered last year to support vulnerable customers through the pandemic.
