Aire Rivers Trust

The Aire Rivers Trust is a charity dedicated to improving our River Aire and its catchment.

Our vision for the River Aire is a thriving river valued for its environmental, social and economic benefits, and which is actively appreciated by the community for its diverse ecology and contribution to flood risk management.

We were set up in 2011 to carry out projects that improve the condition of the river for its wildlife and for people to enjoy.

Much of our work involves education and explaining to people how the River Aire effects our economy and well-being, and what steps we can do to protect our watercourses. With the help of volunteers we run river clean ups and conservation days every Thursday and Friday. What we do varies as we move through the seasons. In Winter, we focus on tree planting and natural flood management. As water levels drop in Spring, we are able to start removing debris and litter. We aim to do as much as possible before vegetation grows high. By summer, we are “balsam bashing” to remove invasive non-native species. Throughout the year we run mini projects and one-off corporate volunteer days.

If you would like to volunteer, take a look at https://aireriverstrust.org.uk/volunteer/ for more information.

We rely entirely on grants, fund raising activities and donations to carry out our work.

Aire Valley Rail Users' Group

We are a voluntary group that campaigns directly for services on the Airedale line and on the routes from Airedale to Carlisle, Morecambe, and London. We liaise with the train operators such as Northern Rail and LNER as well as Metro and Network Rail. Our aim is to ensure passengers on the Airedale line continue to enjoy the best possible train services and station facilities.

AVRUG’s campaigning and liaison work is done by a small volunteer committee which meets about every two months to discuss developments and plan the way ahead. The committee is elected every year at the AGM which is normally held in Saltaire Methodist Church Hall – usually in April.

Support is also available at "aphasia cafes" which meet every two weeks in venues across Yorkshire https://aphasiasupport.org/aphasia-cafes/

Carer support for family members and friends is available online https://aphasiasupport.org/online-carer-support/

Interested in volunteering?

Aphasia Support clients in Bradford are currently waiting for support. You would have the potential to make a significant difference for these clients in their day-to-day lives by helping them to improve their functional communication. Living with aphasia can be a very lonely experience when you don’t have the tools to tell people how you feel, or express your innermost needs. We use communication in almost every aspect of our daily lives, including using social media, talking with family, and even changing the channel on the television, but these things can all be very difficult when you have aphasia.

The good news is that the support works! As well as improving communication, volunteer support has also been found to help client’s improve their confidence and sense of social isolation. At Aphasia Support’s last client satisfaction survey 100% of our client base agreed that their volunteer “knows how to help and always encourages and supports me”, with 90% strongly agreeing.
