The Severn Rivers Trust is an independent environmental charity established to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of the rivers, streams, watercourses and water bodies in the Severn catchment, and to advance the education of the public in the management of water and the wider environment.

The Rivers Trust movement is a rapidly expanding organisation under the umbrella structure of the Association of Rivers Trusts (ART). There are currently 30 rivers trusts in England and Wales, employing around 70 people full time, together with hundreds of part time workers and over 5000 volunteer supporters. The Severn Rivers Trust was incorporated in July 2008 as a company limited by guarantee, replacing the earlier Teme Rivers Trust, which for the previous eighteen months had been successfully involved in a number of projects in the Teme catchment. SRT obtained charitable status in February 2010.

We know that streams and rivers are intimately connected to the landscapes they drain and the valleys through which they flow; a river in poor condition normally reflects a catchment in poor condition. Most problems can be addressed and most can be fixed in a manner that benefits all.

The Trust's vision is to have living, working landscapes that deliver employment, food and amenity without impacting on rivers and biodiversity, and without the need for heavy regulation and supervision.
