Almost two thirds of households within 1km of our canals and rivers don’t have access to the same life opportunities that many of us take for granted.
We’re in an ideal position to help rebalance this. From our Let’s Fish! programme, to our Youth Wellbeing Hubs, our programme of community activities can make a positive difference to young people’s lives.
