We have a range of volunteering opportunities. Although you don’t need any knowledge of rivers or land management, you will need to be fairly fit and be able to walk some distance.  Opportunities exist during the week and at weekends so if you have a few hours to spare either weekly or monthly, we would love to hear from you.

Please complete the form below if you are interested in becoming involved. 

1. Construction of Plate Weirs and Leaky Dams at Hardcastle Crags – Volunteers are needed to build plate weirs and leaky dams throughout the catchment. Training will be given and you will need to be able to walk some distance between sites.  Construction will start very soon so if you are interested and would like to become involved, please contact us using the form below.

2. Landowners and Land Managers – Do you own or manage land in the upper catchment and would you like to know more about what you can do to ‘Slowtheflow’, please get in touch to have a chat about how you can help.

What else can you do? 

As a community, we can all play a part to make our valley safer and to slow the flow of water into our rivers preventing damage to our homes, business, public spaces and schools.  Even if you can only spare a few hours a month, we would love to hear from you.   If you cannot afford the time to volunteer, then look at our pages on HOW YOU CAN SLOW THE FLOW AT HOME / WORK / PUBLIC SPACES / SCHOOLS and in our community.

We can all contribute in small ways to help each other.

We are staffed by volunteers who work during the day so please bear with us if we do not respond straightaway. We look forward to hearing from you.
