Meet the people that make it happen
Our local Trusts work across Britain, Northern Ireland and Ireland to drive positive change for rivers. In this section, you can find out more about what we do and the impact of our work.
Explore the major threats that our rivers are facing, get clued up on the latest facts, figures and data available, and source some useful resources that can help rivers thrive.
Whether you can’t wait to get your hands dirty while cleaning up rivers, or you’d rather support us from the comfort of your own home, there are lots of ways you can support our work to restore rivers.
We want people to enjoy rivers as much as we do. In this section you’ll find helpful information on how to swim, paddle, catch and play safely in rivers.
Data and evidence are a critical part of integrated catchment management, helping partners to engage a wide audience, agree on the priority issues and solutions, and monitor outcomes.
Raw sewage in our rivers
Sewage is discharged into rivers across the
and Ireland on a daily basis. This isn’t an isolated problem; it occurs up and down the country, affecting urban city centre rivers and pristine chalk streams alike.
Advising land managers
As a charity focused on delivering solutions, it is critical to our success that we have the best possible engagement with the farmers, land managers, and riparian owners who are directly connected to the rivers that we aim to protect and the catchments that surround them.
We’re supported by so many fantastic people and groups, take a look below to meet the team behind the charity.
