Who we are

We are conservation experts with a wealth of data and expertise at our fingertips. Learn more about who we are. 

Rivers shape our landscapes and provide the foundations for our cities, towns and countryside. When they thrive, so do we.

The Rivers Trust are conservation experts with a wealth of data and expertise at our fingertips. We work with our member trusts to make our shared vision a reality: wild, healthy, natural rivers, valued by all.

We want all life to thrive in and around our rivers. Whether you enjoy fishing, swimming or a riverside stroll, our rivers need us more than ever to recover and revive.

With our expertise, reach and our member trusts’ local knowledge, we work with farmers, residents and organisations to provide advice and resources for their communities. We bring together the people, knowledge, data and intelligence to help rivers thrive again; for us and future generations.

Our rivers are an integral part of our communities and we are leading the movement to protect them.
