Proud Guardians of England’s Greatest River.

 

Tyne Rivers Trust are the only independent environmental charity dedicated to improving the Tyne Catchment. We work with people and communities to protect and enhance the River Tyne and its tributaries, so they are healthy, biodiverse, and an asset for present and future generations.

We can only achieve this by working with others, and as a charity we are reliant on financial support. We need people to support us and get involved.

The River Tyne has recovered a great deal over the last 50 years from the pollution caused during the peak of industry activity. The demise of hard industry in the lower reaches was the key, but continued improvement in water quality comes from a whole range of measures throughout the catchment that all need a careful balance of prevention and intervention. Although the river may seem clean, there are still many problems to be remedied.

Although we apply a scientific method to all of the work that we do, science alone is not the solution; engagement with local communities and stakeholders whether residents, businesses or schools is vital. Eyes on the riverbank from volunteer groups and recreational users add crucial touch points for monitoring and observing the river.

Tyne Rivers Trust was created in 2004 when the second Tyne Tunnel project was being developed. There was concern that building the tunnel would significantly impact the river’s ecosystem and to mitigate for this, funding was set aside to establish the Trust.
