The Water, Engineering and Development Centre is one of the world’s leading education and research institutes for developing knowledge and capacity in water and sanitation for sustainable development and emergency relief.
We focus on solutions for people in low- and middle-income countries, helping to provide evidence-based answers to important questions – not only about what needs to be done to improve basic infrastructure and essential services – but also how to go about it.
Founded in 1971, WEDC is based in the School of Civil and Building Engineering at Loughborough University, one of the top award-winning UK universities.

Wherever the Need is a UK charity offering a new look at giving and supporting. Our aim is a holistic approach to the provision and use of eco-sanitation toilets and clean water, which we believe to be vital to the good health of both people and the planet. Once these fundamentals are in place, our focus is the development of sustainable livelihoods.
It is our priority to implement projects that will directly benefit individuals over the long-term in the most efficient way possible (‘direct action’). This enables sponsors of the charity to respond specifically to the needs of local people (rather than indirectly through Governmental or large Non-Governmental Organisations) thus enabling, where wished, a connection to be established between those making the donation and those benefiting from it.
In tandem with the provision of sanitation, water and livelihoods, WTN has responded to the building of houses and community centres in areas stricken by disaster. All projects are approached in the most environmentally sensitive manner possible to further the Trustee’s aim to safeguard the planet.
