The Living River Foundation is a local not for profit organisation set up to monitor and raise awareness to protect and improve the Thames and Medway rivers.
The estuaries and tidal rivers around our coast, harbour a diverse mix of fauna and wildlife which is being threatened by the hand of humans. Whether it be from plastics, sewage or litter, the Living River Foundation is trying to raise awareness of the impacts that our way of life has on the environment and how we can change our ways to better our environment.
Our work includes sampling and monitoring microplastics in the suspension, organising litter picks and by facilitating talks and workshops within the local community to engage and allow others understand the issues faced by their local environment.

Given the ongoing circumstances and shortages for critical supplies like antibacterial wipes and gel, the Living River Foundation has come to a difficult but necessary decision. In line with government guidance all clean ups, surveys and inside events will be postponed until May 2020 at the very least. Our priority is safety of our volunteers and community, particularly critical services, so we will operate our existing fleet and infrastructure with a skeleton crew.
