Volunteer with BeachCare

Love our coastline? Want to help keep it clean? Want to meet new people?

Why not join one of our BeachCare groups and help look after our stunning coastline.

What is BeachCare?

BeachCare improves the appearance of our coast and beaches and takes harmful waste away from our natural environment.  We have groups of volunteers based around Morecambe Bay, who carry out regular litter picks on our beaches.  We are also involved in raising awareness of marine litter issues, lobbying to improve the condition of the coast and campaigns to reduce the amount of litter at source.

Over 29 tonnes removed by 4000 volunteers...

Since 2003, over 4000 volunteers have worked with us removing more than 29 tonnes of litter from our beaches.  Much of this is plastics.  This makes a significant improvement to the appearance of our beaches. Find out more about the problem of plastics in our seas here
