Who we’re working with

The ocean is vast. And so is the network of people and organisations fighting to protect it.

We’re proud to be a part of this groundswell of activism, campaigning for a thriving ocean and thriving people.

Surfers Against Sewage has been campaigning tirelessly on sewage pollution for over 30 years. But we can‘t do it alone. We work with others across the country, from individual campaigners to fellow environmental organisations, in order to have the biggest impact. Together we create the change we need for a clean and healthy ocean. Together we are stronger. 

Who we work with

#EndSewagePollution Coalition – In 2020 we brought together a network of over 40 organisations from the environment sector, sports sector and media, to form the #EndSewagePollution Coalition. From Surf England to Wavelength Magazine, the Anglian Trust to British Kayaking, all members are united in our drive to end sewage pollution. Together we have forced government U-turns in legislation, exposed the dirty secrets behind the water industry, and told the truth to the public about the sewage scandal.

Wildlife & Countryside Link – Wildlife and Countryside Link is the largest environment and wildlife coalition in England, bringing together 65 organisations to raise one voice for the protection of nature. We join forces with other environmental organisations working hard to stop the tidal wave of plastic pollution, protect and restore the marine environment, and improve the health of freshwater ecosystems.

The Climate Coalition – We have been members of the Climate Coalition for over ten years. With 140 member organisations, the coalition represents 22 million voices, and campaigns across the UK to highlight all the things that need our protection from the effects of climate change. Together we demand that politicians put aside their differences and commit to doing whatever is necessary to protect our homes and communities.

Break Free From Plastic – We have been a member of the global plastic movement Break Free From Plastic since its launch in 2016. #BreakFreeFromPlastic is a global movement working for a future free from plastic pollution. More than 11,000 organisations and individual supporters from across the world have joined the movement to demand massive reductions in single-use plastics, and to push for lasting solutions to the plastic pollution crisis. Members share the common goals of environmental protection and social justice, and work together to bring about systemic change. This means tackling plastic pollution across the whole plastics value chain from extraction to disposal, focusing on prevention rather than cure, and providing effective solutions.
