The Aire Rivers Trust runs regular training for both its volunteers and other organisations working on and using the river.

Volunteer with Us

We couldn’t care for the Aire without volunteers.

Volunteering offers a huge range of rewards. Swap the rush of everyday life for the calmness of being by water. Meet new people or learn new skills.

Our volunteer programme is open to all. We pay volunteer travel expenses (25p / mile or a Day Rider ticket) and loan equipment to make volunteering safe and fun (such as safety boots). You can find the form to claim expenses at the bottom of this page.

We have a range of regular volunteer opportunities. Please get in touch if you want to discuss other volunteering roles.

Volunteers are asked to complete a DBS check for this role.

Riverfly Monitors help us understand the Aire
Monthly invertebrate samples from shallow riverbeds help us understand health of the Rivers Aire and Worth. They are key to spotting potential problems early.

Ideal to do alongside regular visits to the river for walking or angling.
