The charity making life better by water

Support us

As a charity your support is vital in helping us protect and maintain the canals you love.

Our 2,000 miles of waterways are used by millions across England and Wales. From boaters to anglers, community groups to families, there's plenty of reasons for everyone to want to spend time by water.

But this means caring for these 250-year-old structures is costly and takes many hands. We're committed to ensure they deliver benefit to people and for nature, but we can't do this without your support.
