COVID-19 update

Tyne Rivers Trust considers managing the increased risk of transmission of COVID-19 of paramount importance. Following the latest government guidance, issued on 4th January 2021, where possible and safe to do so, we continue to deliver our key projects. We are constantly evaluating the situation and will keep up regular contact with our partners, funders and volunteers. All practical volunteer tasks have now been paused until it’s safe to resume.

Our Vision

That the rivers, burns and loughs of our Tyne catchment encourage a bio-diverse environment for people and wildlife to thrive, now and for all time

Our Mission

From Alston and Kielder to Tynemouth, to improve the wellbeing of our rivers and people through education, tackling pollution and practical conservation. We will achieve this by working with local communities and applying our scientific knowledge and environmental skills

Our History

Created in 2004 to mitigate the effect of the construction of the second Tyne Tunnel on the river’s ecosystem, the Trust has established itself as the only environmental charity dedicated to looking after the Tyne Rivers.

“We use the scientific expertise of our team to apply an evidence based approach to everything we do.” Ceri Gibson, Chief executive officer of Tyne Rivers Trust
