The Bristol Water Challenge Panel
The Bristol Water Challenge Panel provides assurance to the economic water regulator Ofwat that Bristol Water has incorporated the preferences and priorities of customers in its business plan for the period 2020 to 2025.
The Bristol Water Challenge Panel contributed to the design of the research programme to find out the answer to key questions. We needed to ensure the customers view was represented in the report.

Meet Peaches, our Independant Chair
Peaches joined the Challenge Panel as Chair in 2016. She is well know locally and in 2017 she became Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant for the City and County of Bristol.
Our annual Youth Board activity is a part of Bristol Water's social contract initiatives.
Every year we engage with 20 six-form students from different schools and discuss various business issues and topics.
This activity benefits both Bristol Water and the students, as we get the views of our future customers, and they get an insight about the modern business.
In 2021 Youth Board was conducted virtually over 2 days. We covered a range of topics, including: the importance of various departments and their main challenges going forward, water consumption and water saving tips, as well as Bristol Water customer priorities.
Bristol Water is committed to listening to future generations and understanding their views, and we will continue to conduct our Youth Board annually.
