Canal & River Trust

Canal & River Trust can work with your company to develop a volunteering programme that provides a very real and practical experience for your staff while delivering environmental and social impact for your local canal or river.

Book a team day out which has a real impact and is also great fun, learn new skills and work in ways that may be new to you.

Feedback from some of our current corporate partners have shown the value of these days to their people. It gives them the opportunity to take a fresh look at their roles and the people who they work with. They come away with new ideas, inspired by spending time by the water and feel invigorated from helping local people, wildlife and heritage.

Due to demand, Canal & River Trust only run a limited number of team days each year and these are spread across out 2,000 mile network. To discuss opportunities available both nationally and locally email:
