Help safeguard the future of Scotland’s canals!
Due to staffing issues, we are currently not organising any new volunteering events for the coming weeks.
If you want to add your name to our database in the meantime, please email our volunteering inbox at email@example.com and we will contact you when we have an opportunity available.
Volunteers play a vital role in the restoration and renaissance of Scotland’s canals, and we’re working with with The Lowland Canals Volunteer Group to encourage even more Canal Volunteers to get involved in managing and looking after their canals in a sustainable and productive way which helps everyone.
If you have some spare time and would like to make friends, learn new skills and help ensure the nation’s biggest linear park continues to welcome millions of cyclists, walkers, boaters, kayakers and anglers each year, then why not become a Canal Volunteer!
From cataloguing the historic wonders of our centuries-old archive to assisting vessels through lock gates or helping keep our canals litter free on the water and the banks, there are a huge number of ways to get involved. Our projects often involve developing your skills or learning something new, and are a great opportunity for personal development.

Canal Volunteer Awards
On Friday the 24th of May 2019 Scottish Canals held the very first Lowland Canal Volunteer Awards!
The awards celebrated individuals, businesses, charities and Scottish Canals staff for their valuable contribution to the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals. The celebrations also saw the very first individuals inaugurated into our Canals Hall of Fame, as the indispensable efforts that have placed them at the heart of the canals called to be honoured. Their ongoing support will see Scotland’s canals continue to prosper, and will help to safeguard the waterways for future generations to enjoy, and for that, we thank them!
