Charitable trusts

Charitable trusts and foundations are helping us to increase our impact on people and their communities through generous grants.

This vital funding enables us to embark on new projects, using our waterways and museums as unique spaces that make a difference to people’s lives.

The re-opening of Nantwich AqueductCharitable grants help us to achieve much more so that an increasing number of people can get out there and enjoy all that the waterways have to offer. From education and arts initiatives to projects bringing communities together to enhance heritage sites and protect their local environment.

Recent projects that our trusts and foundations supporters have helped us to bring to fruition have included:
