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.

Currently, groups are based around

  • Humphrey Head and Furness
  • Arnside and Silverdale
  • Hest Bank and Bolton-le-Sands and
  • Middleton Sands to Sunderland Point.
  • Walney Island

Over 54 tonnes removed by 6000+ volunteers...

Since 2003, over 6000 volunteers have worked with us removing more than 54 tonnes of litter from our beaches.  Much of this is plastics.  This makes a significant improvement to the appearance of our beaches and removes plastic that risks poisoning wildlife and polluting our seas.
