Until July 2012 British Waterways was the public corporation that cared for the 2,200-mile network of canals and rivers in England, Scotland and Wales. Its role was to ensure that the waterways could be used for all to enjoy, now and for many years to come.

We're the charity who look after and bring to life the 2000 miles of waterways, because we believe that life is better by water


Our research shows that spending time by water, whether it be your lunchbreak, daily commute or just a weekend stroll, really can make us feel happier and healthier.

Groundwork is a charity working nationally and locally to transform lives in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities.

We help people to carry out thousands of diverse, locally-led projects each year. Projects that tackle climate change and help people out of fuel poverty. That bring out the best in young people by helping them to improve their local area. Projects that build stronger communities by improving green space or get people back into work and create green jobs.
