Who we are, what we campaign for

IWA does more for boaters than any other organisation.

IWA's vision is to see a widely-appreciated and well-maintained network of inland waterways available for the benefit of all. Take a look at our current campaigns.

Campaigning for the use, maintenance, and restoration of Britain's inland waterways

IWA campaigns for 100% of Britain's inland waterways and provides a strong voice for all waterway users.

The Inland Waterways Association (IWA) is a registered charity, founded in 1946, which advocates the conservation, use, maintenance, restoration and development of the inland waterways for public benefit.

IWA members’ interests include boating, towpath walking, industrial archaeology, nature conservation and many other activities associated with the inland waterways. Find out more about IWA.

IWA's Waterway Recovery Group helps restore derelict waterways through their week-long Canal Camp working holidays and weekend digs.
