Canal Life

Canal Life

The canals of Scotland offer so much but, without us, many people would never discover them, and many of the people who need them most – whose lives could be transformed by using them – would have no idea that potential was there. Scotland’s canals connect with some of our poorest communities. We help preserve and sustain the life of these extraordinary community assets and living museums running through the heart of towns, cities and countryside. From volunteer-led projects that bring new lift to once-neglected sections of waterway and encourage people to explore everything the canals have to offer, to ambitious developments such as the creation of Scotland’s first urban white water centre in the heart of North Glasgow, we find out what people really need and want, and then we work in close partnership with other community groups and organisations to make it happen. In 2016 1,393 volunteers helped conserve their local canal.
