Canal and River Trust 

Canal and River Trust are the charity who look after 2,000 miles of canals and rivers, research shows that life is better by water and makes people feel happier and healthier. Across the West Midlands 559 miles of canals travel through richly vibrant and culturally diverse communities. Around 1.75 million people live within 1km of our waterways and 51% live within walking distance of their local canal.

We have a fantastic environment and structure to help companies deliver their Corporate and Social Responsibility policy as well as give something back to their local community and that could be something as simple as repairing a wall or a section of towpath or you could sponsor a larger project to improve your local communities experience on the canal. Working with a 200-year-old structure means there is always something that needs repair and there’s never enough money or time to get everything done.
