Keep Canals Alive: We Need Your Voice

Government funding cuts put future of nation’s historic canals at risk.

A reduction in canal grant funding of over £300 million in real terms over a 10-year period from 2027 will threaten the future of the nation’s historic canals, leading to their decline and to the eventual closure of some parts of our cherished waterways network. 

We’re asking you to help #KeepCanalsAlive by emailing your local MP urging them to provide the nation’s canals with the funding they need to protect them for future generations. 

In two simple steps you can help us take action today.
