Canals need many hands to look after them and by volunteering with us you can help make many more miles of canal blue, green and better.

Volunteering is a great way to get active and meet new people, all in the backdrop of our country's stunning canals and rivers. With your help we can help wildlife thrive, and people can find health, happiness and wellbeing on their doorstops.

Get involved

Volunteers help with all aspects of our work to bring canals to life, so we always have a large variety of roles available. Take a look to see which one would suit you. 

Look after the blue and green space on your doorstep

With one in eight of us not having access to private outdoor space, during the past year canals have become everyone's back garden. Now, more than ever, we need your help to look after these blue and green spaces for everyone to enjoy, everyday. So please #ActNowForCanals and volunteer.
