Help safeguard the future of Scotland’s canals!
Volunteers play a vital role in the restoration and renaissance of Scotland’s canals, and we’re working with with Scottish Waterways Trust and 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.
