River Aire Care

After the devastating floods on Boxing Day 2015 the river banks were left covered in litter and other debris that had been washed into the river. With funding from The Environment Agency and Bradford Council, we set up our River AIre Care programme and set about cleaning up and educating people about flood risk and how they could help. The volunteers that we recruited made a huge impact removing debris across the Bradford district, making the river more attractive and safer for everyone. This work continues as part of DNAire.

Staff and partners worked with communities along the river to help them understand the risks that flooding posed to them. Our advice helped build their flood resilience. Residents and businesses were encouraged to sign up to the Environment Agency’s Floodline and to make their own flood plans. If you think you are at risk of flooding, you can sign up for free flood warnings here.
