MAVES began its work as an environmental charity in 2015. We have recently grown to the size at which we can register with the Charity Commission. We are doing so under the name Arun Countryside Trust to allow a wider long term remit, supporting the Arun countryside's cultural heritage alongside its natural environment.

Partner organisations include Sussex Wildlife Trust and Arundel Agenda 21.
