There are many ways in which you can help us and help your local waters!
Contact us if you would like to join us for a day helping out – we are always looking for keen volunteers to come and give us a hand in many aspects of our work such as : Japanese knotweed spraying, looking for sparling or tree planting.
Joining us on some work days can give you hands on experience of what we do, and it will also help you 'do your bit' for the rivers!
As we are a charitable non-profit organisation, we are always looking to source extra money to help fund practical works and local projects. You can help us continue our important work by providing a donation to the Trust.
You can help by donating to the Trust via EveryClick, however we also encourage everyone to sign up to 'Give as you live'.
'Give as you live' allow our supporters to raise free donations simply by shopping using your 'Give as you live' card. Shop at over 4,100 leading stores such as Amazon, eBay, Sainsbury's and Tesco to name a few; these leading shops will donate a percentage of what you purchase from them, directly to the Trust – costing you nothing.

By donating to the Trust, we will ask if you wish to become a supporter of the Trust.
Each spring the GFT organises an afternoon of presentations covering our work over the previous year. The attendees are usually various funders, supporting organisations, key stakeholders and interested parties.
During the summer this year, we undertook a project (commissioned by Scottish Power) examining why in some years at Tongland fish pass there are a larger number of returning adult Atlantic salmon which are heavily infected with Saprolegnia fungus, in comparison to other years.
A summary of the 2018 timed electrofishing surveys for the Urr are provided. These surveys target salmon fry and provide information on annual fluctuations and distribution across 12 sites spread over the catchment.
