The Watch Around Water (WAW) program has received a significant boost thanks to the generosity of the team at IXOM, who have agreed a sponsorship arrangement to support the program for an initial period of two years.
The support comes at a crucial time for the growing program, with all of the sponsorship being reinvested into the development of improved tools, initiatives and processes. Decisions on the reinvestment will be made by the Watch Around Water Advisory Committee made up of facility representatives.
The improvements will be used to:
· strengthen the program structure
· create additional resources
· develop additional training materials
· improve delivery of the WAW messaging
· increase overall program support
IXOM is viewed as an ideal partner to the program.
