Other Charities and Organisations

We are not directly involved with all of the organisations listed below, but believe they do important work and we want to share it.

Good Night Out Campaign train and support nightlife organisations to better understand, respond to, and prevent sexual harassment and assault through their accreditation programme. River Legacy is proud to say that we completed the training in September 2020 and are an accredited GNO organisation. There’s more information available on their website and you can follow them on Instagram and Facebook.

Diversity in the Outdoors

Following the Black Lives Matter protests in summer 2020 River Legacy feel that we have a social responsibility to use our platform to tackle racism and promote inclusivity within kayaking, to allow everyone to enjoy the sport and flourish. A small part of that is educating ourselves and others, so we’ve included some reading here, mostly from a UK perspective, about racism and diversity in the outdoors.

Team River Legacy

Check out our Team River Legacy paddlers below, an incredible group who kayak all over the world. We’re very lucky to have a team of likeminded kayakers who support our work to get people on the water. They keep us up to date on their adventures and help promote River Legacy events.
