Rivers are the heart of the natural world, and the heart of everything that we do. For over two decades our dedicated team have been using their vast knowledge of the local area, and the natural world, to improve over 375 miles of rivers in Lancashire and North Yorkshire. As a charity, this work is only possible thanks to grants and donations like yours. When you make a donation to Ribble Rivers Trust aims to conserve and protect the River Ribble, and all the rivers that flow into it, for wildlife and people.

How your support will help

When you support Ribble Rivers Trust, you also support local communities.

Your donation will go directly towards on-the-ground action that will make a real difference in the health and vitality of our rivers. Ribble Rivers Trust work to remove river blocking weirs, engineer new wetlands, and create new woodlands, all with the goal of making our waterways healthier and more resilient.

And we do more than just environmental restoration. Our team work closely with urban and rural communities. Together we help people make positive changes to their lifestyles, businesses, and farming practices that will benefit both people and the environment. Specialist staff also teach primary school children about the importance of rivers in the natural world, inspiring the next generation of conservationists.

Our goal is a world where our rivers are clean and healthy. Where we can play and explore in nature and where wildlife thrives and rivers teem with life. That’s the world that Ribble Rivers Trust is working to create. When you become a supporter, your help means our charity can make that vision a reality.
