Our Volunteers

At IWA we greatly value the time and effort that all our volunteers give in order to help our waterways. Many volunteers choose to help because they enjoy getting involved and we would like to share their stories with you. Each month we take a look at an IWA volunteer and the work they do so that you can truly appreciate the diversity of the opportunities on offer. We have also provided you with some examples of great success stories and for those who already volunteer with us, why not take a look at the resource page below. Here we have grouped together all the most important links to help you run successful events and answer your questions.

  • Meet our volunteers Read interviews with a variety of IWA volunteers to see what they get up to in our monthly blogs.
  • Volunteer resources A list compiling all the useful links you may need as an IWA volunteer from poster templates to health and safety guidance

National Awards

IWA wouldn't be able to carry out such important work without the time and effort generously given by our volunteers. To show our appreciation we present a variety of awards annually. Visit our National Awards page to see who has won in the past and find out how to nominate an individual who you think has made a significant contribution to IWA's work.
