The Waterston Site Community Liaison Committee (CLC) is key to our community engagement day to day. With a rich and diverse membership including elected community representatives, quarterly meetings provide a robust forum for two way communications. In addition to the quarterly meetings, when necessary we share updates with CLC to share with those that they represent.
Committee members, detailed below, welcome your queries and have meeting minutes available for discussion.

Dragon has a long term commitment to Pembrokeshire’s young people through various projects and support. With our commitment to skills development in Pembrokeshire, working closely with educational partners since 2005, we have invested over £4m to date.
Having close partnerships with Pembrokeshire College, Pembrokeshire Education Authority, numerous networks and stakeholders, the project engages with circa 4,000 learners a year. The aims of the project are to engage, enthuse, inspire, and raise STEM aspirations; ultimately supporting the youth of Pembrokeshire to reach their full potential, whilst improving their career opportunities. Free to all Pembrokeshire learners, they have access Outdoor experiential learning STEM fieldtrips, Follow-up classroom STEM workshops, Science Squads and Science Aglow events all with free transportation. Working across the voluntary/public and private sectors, allowing learners access to industry experts, the project ensures it meets customers’ needs and the curriculum, through its growth of networks. In collaboration with the local education authority/schools/college/teachers and learners, DDE ensures it continues to evolve – complementing the curriculum, assisting with improved inspections, and raising attainment levels (which has been evidenced). The Dragon Darwin Experience has become an inspirational STEM project, being recognised through various stakeholders and UK and Wales Awards.
In partnership with Pembrokeshire College, these highly successful events held three times a year, provide the opportunity for learners to meet with sector specific employers; develop/enhance their soft skills; learn about the company – visa versa – with the potential to lead to opportunities of work placement, apprenticeships or employment.
The College’s Sports Academies seek to encourage and nurture sporting talent amongst its student population and provide opportunities for learners to maintain their health and wellbeing through sporting activity showcasing the benefits of individual and team sport.
With sport and physical activity seen as one of the most positive influences on learner health and wellbeing, growing confidence and self-esteem, the Sports Academies provide learners with the opportunity to take part in sport at all levels. Managed through the College’s sports department, with support of external professionals, learners can take part in Rugby, Football and Swimming while the dedicated ladies academy covers Rugby, Football and Netball and uses both the facilities available at the College as well as at external venues.
This sector leading and award winning programme, has an exciting development for 2023. Learners will progress through an 8-week challenge passport, including a Dragon STEM renewables element with the outcome of learners graduating to one of the school houses and achieving a Crest Award.
Our team of employee volunteers support numerous local voluntary organisations and charities. Through our partnership with Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS) we recognise our employees contributions to our community through donations, and undertake ‘Make a difference days’ supporting groups with projects.
As a key Pembrokeshire employer providing energy security into the UK, we see a Visitor and Education Centre as an excellent opportunity to provide a quality experience showcasing energy transition knowledge and education for our community, visitors, children and young adults. It will inspire and increase awareness of the natural deep-water port, its surrounding landscape, the Waterway’s industrial history, the present energy transition and future renewables, with skills development and employment opportunities now and into the future. This is something we are working with other Haven colleagues – more details to follow.
