We're a Registered Charity, based in Oxfordshire. We're working to end the sewage pollution of the River Windrush. Our aim is to make rivers safe for all.
Registered Charity Number 1199418.
Monitoring river invertebrates to understand the impact of pollution
Thanks to sewage pollution, the River Windrush is increasingly hostile to life. We want to give animals back their homes.

The River Windrush used to be a community asset. It was somewhere people could play, paddle and swim. We want to make the river safe for all.
Stop sewage pollution
End the illegal release of untreated sewage into the River Windrush
(and her sister rivers).
Raise the bar
Improve standards so legally discharged waste doesn't harm the River Windrush
(or her sister rivers).
What we do
We collect and analyse data on water quality, the processes that lead to sewage pollution and the impact it has on the environment. Citizen Science is a big part of what we do - working with local volunteers and professional scientists.
We lobby to improve awareness of the issues, providing accurate and balanced information. Our story has been picked up by BBC and ITV News – as well as national newspapers.
We work across political parties and collaborate with charities who have similar goals. We also engage with companies and gov't agencies responsible for managing sewage.
