Ribble Rivers Trust (RRT) is a regional charity set up to conserve the Ribble
Catchment, particularly its rivers, brooks, becks, and streams. Over the last 10 years, RRT has
developed and grown into a sector leading organisation, known for getting things done,
strong partnership working and a collaborative approach.

We have 5 teams, each with a particular focus (Data and Evidence, Land Management, People and
Learning, River Conservation and Core Services), and each full of enthusiastic professionals
with diverse skills and experience. The teams work closely on collaborative and integrated
projects to improve, protect and create a mosaic of habitats and land uses that will lead to a
healthy riverine environment. This is underpinned by a science driven approach that deliver
multiple benefits for wildlife and people.

Wildlife Trust, Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, The Forest of Bowland AONB, Local Authorities
