In our second Rivers Trust review, we are again delighted to report on the fantastic work carried out by the Rivers Trust movement in the previous year. Rivers Trusts delivered an incredible £19.2m of work to improve rivers in 2017, supported by over 11,000 volunteers, despite challenging financial times for charities. Our trusts now have over 253 local professionals covering nearly every river catchment in England and Wales, with strong growth across Ireland. In England, trusts are critical to the delivery of Government’s Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) and deliver over £8 of work on the ground, for each £1 of public funding. This shows that communities can take a strong lead in delivering the river environment that they value, and Rivers Trusts provide an effective charitable vehicle to deliver high quality and affordable work on the ground.
