Join Eden Rivers Trust as a Charity Trustee

Are you interested in the environment and passionate about the Eden Valley?

Could you volunteer your skills and time to help Eden Rivers Trust develop its work to improve and sustain the River Eden and its catchment– and to become an even better place for people and wildlife?

Eden Rivers Trust is seeking new trustees to help lead and govern this ambitious environmental charity.

The Trust, whose vision is A Healthy Eden for All, has been working with partners and volunteers since 1996, developing and carrying out innovative environmental projects that restore rivers, improve habitats, manage floods naturally and promote water-friendly farming.
These conservation activities are integrated with creative programmes for schools and community groups that promote awareness, access and learning.

Whilst all trustees have an interest in the charity’s core work of conservation and rivers, they are particularly – but not exclusively – interested in enhancing skills within the Board in marketing, and HR as well as gaining representation from communities who have experienced flooding.

Their ultimate aim is to develop and broaden the diversity of the Board of trustees, ensuring a variety of perspectives and backgrounds so that governance of the charity is as robust and as representative of their stakeholders as possible.
