Our History

The Pump, formerly known as the Shard End Community Building Project (SECBP), is the realisation of a vision of HRH The Prince of Wales, who wanted to create an outstanding building which would not only act as a focus and inspiration for the personal development of young people, but would also be designed and built by young people.

The Pump is committed to practice that protects children (those under the age of 18), young people, those who may be disabled and others who may be particularly vulnerable, from harm, in keeping with the Objects of the Charity. Staff and volunteers who work for The Pump will recognise and accept our responsibilities to develop the awareness of the issues that may cause young people harm. Read more
