As the Official Headline Community Partner of Wrexham AFC, we have been working together to drive community engagement, create inclusive opportunities and break the barriers that prevent some people from taking part in football. We're proud to support the next wave of talent in the local area as the Official Sponsor of Wrexham AFC’s Boys, Girls Centre of Excellence teams and Wrexham AFC’s Powerchair Team.
As part of the partnership, the Wrexham AFC Community Trust will also be delivering the SP Energy Networks’ Powerwise programme. Through interactive learning resources, this programme helps young people learn about the dangers of electricity - supporting the school curriculum in Wales to deliver power safety advice. If you would like to find out more or would like your school to participate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to the classroom sessions on offer, the Powerwise programme can also be accessed online as a teaching resource. www.powerwise.org.uk
SP Energy Networks have forged a long-lasting partnership with the Glasgow Warriors as their official Community Partner. This allows us the opportunity to work together to help support and engage across the communities we serve through various activations and initiatives.
Through this partnership it has become clear the synergies that can be drawn from sport and applied to business which has allowed us to work on joint initiatives such as encouraging females into sport/engineering, effective teamwork, life skills, STEM and charity days. The partnership also allows us to engage differently with some of our harder to reach stakeholders and deliver our key messages.
A selection of our partnership activities are listed below:
SPEN Scotstoun Squad
The 23/24 season saw the SPEN Scotstoun Squad receive a new kit not only to keep them warm but to make them easy to identify at Scotstoun on matchdays. From the group of 40 volunteers, there will be a selection on hand at home games to help anyone who might need extra support should anyone attending require it.

Our SP Energy Networks School Championships, in partnership with Glasgow Warriors, encourages boys and girls to get involved in rugby at a grass roots level. We recognise that young people being involved in any sport helps to develop key life skills such as team working, leadership and communication skills.
Through the championship we are also able to encourage girls to get involved as the schools must have a girls’ team competing. This demonstrates SP Energy Networks commitment to encouraging girls to push boundaries and consider a sport or different career opportunities.
The commitment to supporting girls on the pitch is mirrored in our support of women in the workplace through various career programmes such as our apprenticeship and returners’ programmes. To find out more information about our careers opportunities click here.
Year on Year the championship continues to grow with more than 1,000 girls and boys competing in the rugby competition in 2023 with Balfron High School claiming the SP Energy Networks Warriors Championship title after a thrilling final against Stonelaw High School.
We hosted our first charity day with local charities in and around Glasgow area to understand how through our partnership we can work closely and best support them and their beneficiaries. Our Social Obligations team have been able to raise awareness of our additional services and Priority Service Register through planned natter sessions, team training and visits to charities event days. Feedback received on the day has allowed the Warriors to develop their offering on matchdays by making Scotstoun more inclusive for all. Sensory packs are now on offer on game day and opportunities to meet the team at quiet captains runs for those who need it.
