Your Community and your River
The RiverLife project has a community focus across many of its activities, from engagement with local school children to helping groups practically support their local river via green-bank projects or clean ups. The project team is happy to tailor events for community groups, see below for ideas of what might work for your group.
Talks – We’ve done talks for faith groups, schools, local clubs and community gardens. These have ranged in subject from talks about the local river wildlife, local heritage and changes to the river over the years. Click below to discuss a talk you feel that your group might enjoy.
Walks – Our team and volunteers are happy to do informative and fun walks for groups, this can be a short wander down to the local river or a longer walk that looks at specific subjects, such as built heritage along our waterways. We also have an array of monthly guided walks and cycles that anyone is welcome to join. You can browse the routes for some of our previous guided activities here, or click below to chat with us about the potential for a group walk.
Workshops – We’re happy to do workshops for local groups, in the past these have ranged from getting involved in citizen science projects, such as testing your local river’s water quality, and looking for local non-native invasive plants.

Community Grants are available for all!
The RiverLife project wants to support local groups and people to deliver a wide range of benefits, these are the core aims of our project. We want the grants to be easy to apply for and accessible for all community groups. There are 4 types of grants on offer, which increase in effort required for application corresponding to the amount of funding that is available.
