About Us

The Oriental Cat Welfare Trust (OCWT) is run by volunteers who provide their time and services free of charge.

The main activities of OCWT take place in East Sussex where our Safe Houses are established. However, we also provide coverage throughout England and Wales and are therefore able to support cats on a National basis. Enquiries from Scotland are also welcome and there are no geographical limits on the provision of welfare advice.
