Volunteer at a Beachwatch Beach Clean

Come on down to the beach!

Volunteer for a beachcleanThousands of Beachwatch volunteers can tell you how much fun a beach clean and survey is - and how rewarding! Why not get involved?

To volunteer at a beach clean, all you need to do is find an event and sign up to attend!

There's loads of information on what to bring and what to expect at an event in our volunteer guide. If you need more information about a particular beach clean you can contact the organiser using the link on the event page. 

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? Loads of information is available here. 

If your beach isn't listed, don't let that hold you back! You can add it on to our database and organise your beach cleans there. The more the merrier!

What to expect on the day

  • Wear suitable clothing and footwear - wrap up warm as the wind on the beach can make it chilly. Don't forget the sun cream and a bottle of water! 

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

  • All under 16s must be supervised by a parent or guardian. You will be asked to sign a parental consent form by the organiser.

  • The organiser will give you a safety briefing and tell you how to go about collecting and recording the litter.

Most importantly – Have fun!
