South East Rivers Trust (& the Wandle Trust)

Get to know your local river and join us at one of our volunteering events.

Please note, currently the majority of our events and volunteering opportunities are in south London. We hope to expand our activities over time.

In the current difficult situation with the threat that COVID-19 poses, we have made essential changes to our event format to keep all attendees and staff safe.

Events will be held in small groups and booking will be ESSENTIAL! Many of our volunteer days will be split into two sessions to allow more people the opportunity to come along – please don’t book onto both sessions on one day.

Events are being organised and structured in a way to maintain social distancing at all times. 

Each volunteer will have their own set of equipment and will be asked to bring their own gloves, water, hand gel, mask and food. Equipment will be thoroughly sanitised or quarantined between uses.

Full guidance, with event specific information, will be shared during the booking process. We look forward to working with you all again soon!
