Your safety comes first. Our current volunteering opportunities are very limited to ensure any activities are coronavirus secure. If we don't have any suitable opportunities for you right now, please check back in the future.

You can find updates in the News Updates page.

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. Search for your perfect role

Wellbeing benefits for all

Without the dedication of thousands of volunteers our waterways would eventually fall into disrepair. Become a volunteer and help us bring wellbeing opportunities to people across England and Wales. In doing this you'll not only meet like-minded people and spend time in the great outdoors but you'll make a difference to the local places they love and have plenty of fun along the way.

Volunteering brings a healthy and happy day closer to everyone.


We believe that no child, young person or adult at risk should ever experience abuse of any kind. We are committed to providing safe environments and working practises that promote and protect the safety and welfare of children, young people and adults at risk at all times.
