About Scottish Waterways Trust

From the water to the banks and beyond, we undertake innovative canal-based projects that create a brighter future for the people, communities and wildlife of Scotland.

We help young people gain the skills and confidence to find work; bring vibrancy, life and opportunities to some of the nation’s most disadvantaged communities; encourage people to get active and improve their health and mental wellbeing; and safeguard and improve the rich heritage and environments of Scotland’s canals.

Since the Trust was established over a decade ago, we’ve raised and invested more than £10 million in hundreds of pioneering projects and inspired over 120,000 people to create a brighter future for themselves, their community and Scotland’s waterways.

But, with your help, we can do so much more. Find out more about the work we do and how you can get involved. Or if you would prefer to donate then text ‘canal’ to 70111 to give £3 or visit our Just Giving page.
