Riverlution is a social impact initiative delivered by River Stewardship Company which engages volunteers, communities and schools, delivering skills and support so they can get involved in enhancing their local waterways. This doesn’t just contribute to the environmental legacy we strive for – it creates lasting connections between people and places that matter to them.
Developing skills and enhancing employment opportunities
We provide a number of opportunities for people to gain work experience, skills and knowledge through the work that we do.
Involving individuals and groups in the stewarding of waterways
Practical volunteer days are a fantastic way to involve local people in looking after their patch of waterway, whilst having a positive effect on health and well-being.
Supporting communities and organisations to enhance their own environment
We aim to help others to look after their local patch of waterway. This can be through simply providing advice to homeowners or supporting community groups with tools and training.
Using festivals and events to educate and inspire
Festivals and events are a fantastic way to celebrate the cultural and natural heritage of a waterway and to inspire, educate and connect local people to their local patch.
The Blue Loop Community Project
The Blue Loop Community project is an example of Riverlution at it's finest! The group is run by members of the local community and delivers social impact across all the key areas represented by Riverlution.
