Love Your Waterways - Join us today

Together we can protect our waterways

Over the last few years some boaters’ facilities have been closed leaving gaps in provision of water, Elsan disposal and rubbish bins across the waterway network. We are working with navigation authorities to get more facilities provided.

Your support can make the difference.

We are the charity that works to protect and restore the country's 6,500 miles of canals and rivers.

Funding is the biggest ongoing threat to the waterways and we are constantly working to open up new funding streams, whilst ensuring that the people that use our waterways get a fair deal. We also provide advice and guidance to nearly 100 active groups who are working to bring abandoned waterways back to life.

Much of this work is possible because of the generosity of our supporters. You can help us to ensure that waterways are looked after for everyone to enjoy.

Together we can do more.  Join us today and help us to campaign for the waterways that you love.
