Volunteer With Us

At IWA we greatly value the time and effort that all our volunteers give in order to help our waterways. If you love the waterways and want to give something back, then volunteering with IWA is for you!

Our Volunteer Directory lists our volunteer opportunities across England and Wales. Why not search it to see if there is something you'd like to do? Or why not make us an offer?

There are so many ways to get involved, whether you are the kind of person who loves getting stuck in to something practical, feels they can make a difference to one of our committees or has a specilist skills to offer. 

Our volunteers  

Meet some of our volunteers and see how they enjoy getting involved and make a difference. When asked, "Why volunteer with us?" our volunteers gave many different reasons.

As part of our support for our volunteers we have our private volunteer area (login required).
