We need your help

However hard we work, whatever plans we make, we can only ever achieve them with the help and support of people like you.

Whether it’s helping a young person learn new skills and take the first step towards work, protecting the priceless heritage and environments of Scotland’s 200-year-old canals, or encouraging people to get active to improve their health and wellbeing and make some new friends in the process, our incredible volunteers and supporters help us to deliver a huge range of projects and transform lives.

Have a look at how we can work together to create a brighter future for the people of Scotland and think about volunteering or donating today. Text ‘canal’ to 70111 to give £3 or visit our Just Giving Page.
