School Pocket Adoptions

Our Schools Pocket Adoption scheme encourages schools to adopt an unloved pocket of canal on their doorstep. Our tailored learning resources will give you the tools to design a transformation for the space - and the Canal & River Trust will turn your plans into a reality. The scheme encourages pupils to spend time outdoors and care for their local environment.

This is a new scheme which is being launched along the Regent's Canal initially - watch this space for nationwide roll out.
