The South East Rivers Trust

The South East Rivers Trust (SERT) is an environmental charity dedicated to achieving healthy river ecosystems for all, across the South East of England. The Trust’s mission is to deliver outstanding river ecosystem enhancement through science-based action, collaboration, education and engagement.


SERT is a member of the national Rivers Trust, and is part of the rivers trust movement which is comprised of over 60 local trusts, which are described as having ‘wet feet’ because they concentrate their efforts on practical environmental enhancement works on the ground. The Trust’s core values are central to all we strive to achieve, including bringing positive energy, expertise and specialist knowledge to develop good relationships and to deliver to a high standard making a real difference to rivers and their catchment areas.
