Our role within the craft

We continue to strongly support the craft of plumbing and the associated industries, including the conservation of our great heritage. The support of education at all levels is a key part of this work. Plumbing is a live and advancing craft that is an essential requirement in modern society.


The Company has a leading role in supporting the Livery Companies Skills Council in celebrating career development by recognising excellence in achievement through the Apprentice, Journeyman and Master Certificates.


The company offers a variety of awards to recognise exceptional work by trainees in the industry and the Armed Forces.

Financial Assistance

Bursaries provided by the Company are for student plumbers who would benefit from financial assistance as a direct result of progressing from NVQ Level 2 MES (Plumbing) to undertake NVQ Level 3 MES (Plumbing).

Our Heritage

Our Plumbing Museum Workshop Trust at Amberley (previously at Singleton) continues to demonstrate and teach the ancient skill of lead casting, an important skill in the maintenance of our historic buildings.
