The RRC is an independent, not-for-profit organisation formed in 1994 by members drawn from the UK public, private and NGO sectors. The RRC is not a project design or management consultancy and it does not bid or competitively tender for on-site work against commercial consultants or contractors.
The RRC's Business Plan sets out a high-level framework to guide the delivery of services and the RRC programme of work over the five-year period from 2010 to 2015. The RRC programme is set out around three core areas of activity:
- Knowledge exchange - on river restoration and management activities;
- Case specific advice and assessment - of river projects and the ongoing management of rivers;
- Guidance and mentoring - to inform best practice river management and restoration.
