We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Volunteering in the East Midlands

Find out more about opportunities for volunteering across the East Midlands waterways.

We have a wide range of opportunities to help us care for, promote and enhance our waterways. This includes Towpath Taskforce (practical maintenance), Volunteer Rangers and the iconic role of volunteer lock keeper.

We also support groups to undertake specific projects and work with lots of groups who have adopted part of their local waterway. Visit our adoptions page for more information.

We provide our volunteers with appropriate training, encouragement and ongoing support to enable all to make the most of these fantastic opportunities. Search our website for opportunities in your area.
