Take Five Actions For Your River

Are You In?

We’re Trent Rivers Trust, your local rivers charity. 

We’re leading the recovery of rivers here in the Midlands, including the river Dove, Derbyshire Derwent, the Soar, Cole, Mease, the Trent, and many more. 

We’re on a mission to connect you to your local river. 

That’s why we’ve come up with the #FiveForRivers challenge – open to anyone and everyone!

Where We Work

Our Story

Trent Rivers Trust was founded over 20 years ago. After noticing the upsetting disappearance of Atlantic salmon in the Trent and its tributaries, a small group of people decided to act. This group then became Trent Rivers Trust.

Reintroducing what is now a self-sufficient salmon run,  was only the beginning.

We have since worked on over 250 projects to help restore, conserve and protect healthy and natural rivers for communities and wildlife in the Trent catchment.

As part of the Rivers Trust movement, we’re here to make a difference for rivers on the ground.
