The Duckworth Worcestershire Trust

The Pump House is run by the Duckworth Worcestershire Trust (DWT), a registered charity established in 1998 by former chairman of Worcester Heat Systems, Cecil Duckworth.

The Trust is dedicated to the conservation, protection and enhancement of the natural and built environments for the people of Worcestershire, and raising awareness of wider environmental issues. It also aims to relieve poverty amongst those who are disadvantaged.

The DWT achieves these objectives through active involvement in a number of projects, a partnership approach to our work, the provision of funding, information, environmental education and environmental management. We rely on volunteers for much of what we do.
