Volunteer at a Beachwatch Beach Clean



The Covid-19 (coronavirus) infection has been declared a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organisation.
The health and wellbeing of our volunteers and supporters is our utmost priority and as such we have taken the decision to advise that all  beach clean events should be cancelled pending further notice.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will contact organisers and volunteers by email as well as update the guidance on our website as the situation develops.

Can't find an event in your area?

Events are being added all the time so keep checking back! 

If there's no event at your chosen beach, why not organise your own? If the beach you'd like to clean isn't listed add it on to our database and become an organiser there. 

At the event 

  • Wear suitable clothing and footwear - Don't forget the sun cream and a drink in a re-usable bottle! 

  • If you have them, bring strong gloves - like gardening gloves.

  • Under 16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will need to sign a parental consent form on the day.

  • There will be a briefing on safety and to tell you how to go about collecting and recording the litter.
