Western Sussex Rivers Trust

We're the Rivers Trust for Western Sussex, a team striving to protect and restore resilient, vibrant riverscapes for wildlife and people.

We’re a small but passionate team, packed with knowledge, experience and, most importantly, a strong love for rivers and wildlife.

Working closely with partners across our catchment area, our focus is on working collaboratively to help improve river health, enabling the wildlife who live here to thrive, and ultimately ensuring these precious habitats are here for generations to enjoy.

In a nutshell we:

  • Apply a Catchment Based Approach, focussing on partnerships across sectors throughout the whole of the riverscape. 
  • Monitor water quality and quantity, and deliver projects directly which enhance habitats for wildlife and the enjoyment of rivers for people.
  • Engage with a huge range of local people, businesses, community groups and farmers groups.
