Act Now For Canals

With one in eight people not having access to private outside space, canals have become everyone's back garden and have been a lifeline for so many people during the pandemic.

But looking after these precious spaces is costly and takes many hands. That is why we are now asking for your help to make canals in your area blue, green and better. Together we can bring nature back to our towns and cities and deliver health, happiness and wellbeing to millions of people. 

We believe that no other UK charity brings so much free, open and accessible blue and green space to the doorsteps of so many people. And we want to keep it that way. 

So please #ActNowForCanals. Join us to take part in vital nature surveys, raise funds, volunteer or just clear up litter. Every small action you take can make a huge difference.
