Introduction Into Canal & River Trust

Come and join the charity that believes that life is better by water. They work with communities to transform their local canal or river, creating places and spaces that can be used and enjoyed by everyone, every day.

Canals and rivers are more than a place for a stroll. For hundreds of years, they've helped us to thrive. In the past, they transported vital goods and busy people around a booming Britain. Today, they inspire us in a different way.

Canal & River Trust story as a charity is rooted in the history of the waterways themselves. The Trust was launched in 2012, taking over the guardianship of British Waterways’ canals, rivers, reservoirs and docks in England and Wales - and heralding the next chapter in the renaissance of the waterways.

After much thought, I realised I wanted to do something that made mornings great, that something is contributing towards the protection and preservation of the environment. To support community engagement with the canals and surrounding greenery, helping people feel like the canals are a space for everyone in the community and not just an inner-city water feature.

Canal & River Trust

It takes an extraordinary team to bring our waterways to life. Supporting the varied community who live, work and play on our canals means that we need an incredibly varied workforce. From engineers to ecologists, museum attendants to marketers, hundreds of people work at the Trust, all striving to make sure life is always better by the water.
