The Rivers Trust (RT) is the new name for the Association of Rivers Trusts (ART) which is a waterway society and registered charity No. 1107144,[1] and an umbrella organisation for trusts concerned with rivers in England and Wales. The Association's headquarters are in Callington, Cornwall.

RT was launched in 2001 by four river trusts: the Eden Rivers Trust, Tweed Foundation, Westcountry Rivers Trust, and the Wye and Usk Foundation. The association was granted registered charity status in 2004. Its Scottish equivalent is the Rivers and Fisheries Trusts of Scotland (RAFTS).

RT is also a member of the Union des Terres de Rivières, a European Union project with 24 partners in 10 EU countries.
