Flowing across the border between England and Wales, the River Wye is one of our most beautiful and precious waterways. But it is dying because of the impacts of agricultural pollution. Run-off and slurry from intensive farming in Powys and Herefordshire is spilling into the river, degrading the habitats of a range of internationally important species.
A deluge of untreated sewage is being discharged by water companies into our rivers and along our coastlines. But the Government is failing to face up to the scale of the problem.

Treasured public spaces across the UK are being sold off and lost to private interests at an alarming rate. We’re supporting a community in Shropshire to save their local green space – and we’re now awaiting a judgment from the Supreme Court.
Government Ministers have been using private email accounts to conduct official business. This was the case throughout the pandemic, when Boris Johnson and others were making important, costly decisions. So far our legal action to challenge the practice hasn’t succeeded, but we’re not giving up. We’re now seeking an appeal hearing in the Supreme Court.
England is an international outlier in trans healthcare – but not in a good way. In November 2022, we went to the High Court to challenge NHS England over the extreme waiting times faced by trans people trying to access specialised healthcare. In January 2023, we received news that our challenge had been rejected by the Judge – but we were also granted permission for an appeal, which was disappointingly dismissed in July 2023.
To register as a charity, an organisation must be charitable: to benefit people and not harm them. Do the LGB Alliance, who seem to dedicate most of their output to denigrating trans people, meet that legal threshold? We’re supporting action to strip the organisation of its charitable status, and are awaiting the outcome.
