Get Volunteering

Posted on

It is with regret that we announce that we are postponing all volunteer activity with Ribble Rivers Trust. We know there are many benefits to volunteering, including the positive boost to mental and physical health, the chance to meet others and contribute positively to your local area. However, given the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the most recent Government advice – asking everybody in the UK to stay at home and only go out for essentials such as food and medicine – we feel that continuing to include volunteers in the limited work we are able to do now would put people at unnecessary risk and be irresponsible. We all want to improve and protect our environment and rivers, but to do that we need to stay healthy and this must be our priority for the time being. We will continue to keep you up to date with the work we are able to do and will organise new volunteer days as soon as we possibly can. Please stay connected with us over the coming weeks and keep yourselves safe and well.

Refer to gov.uk/coronavirus for up to date information and guidance.

We will come through this and our environment and rivers will still need you, let’s make sure we’re all ready for it when the time comes.


Volunteers are incredibly important to charities and throughout the Ribble Life Together project we’ll be looking for volunteer input to help us with some important work.

With over 1,400 miles of rivers and streams in the catchment there are opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get involved.

If you would like to volunteer please sign up here.

Our volunteers we have already planted thousands of trees, put up hundreds of meters of stock fencing and removed countless invasive plants- volunteers provide the vital manpower we need to deliver our habitat projects and without their help we would struggle to maintain our current activity level.


All ages and abilities are welcome and the team will always be there to help. Basic training is provided free of charge and we’ll provide all the equipment needed. All we ask is that volunteers bring wellys, waterproofs, warm clothes, and a packed lunch.
