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

Outcomes of our work

We've launched our first outcomes report: Waterways and Wellbeing, demonstrating building a robust evidence base that our waterways are ‘transforming places and enriching lives'.

Launched to policy makers and officials at the Foundling Museum in London, the report was very well-received and our approach being described as 'ground breaking'.

The report recognises the necessity to measure the value of the multipurpose nature of our waterways in terms of:

  • How they are being used by others as platforms for a wide range of activity
  • The difference that our activities and interventions are making to local people’s lives
  • The contributions they are making to the economic, social, environmental and cultural wellbeing of the nation

Copies of the report can be found here:
