Support Us

We need your help!

As a charity, the Wear Rivers Trust relies entirely on grants, donations and the goodwill of those who love the River Wear and its tributaries. The income that sponsorship generates helps enable the Trust to carry out work not only on the rivers but within the community and we are very grateful for the generous support we receive.


Could you be just the person for the job?

Volunteers are invaluable to the Wear Rivers Trust and we are always looking for people to join us in helping to care for the Wear and its tributaries. Would you like to help protect your local environment? Do you enjoy working outside in iconic locations? Would you like to gain practical skills or develop a career in environmental management? Come and volunteer with us. We have many activities including electro-fishing, litter picks, river walkovers, riverfly monitoring, Redd counting to name a few that you can get involved in to suit for any ability or experience. It’s great fun in a friendly environment.
