Grants to Support Canoeing and Inland Waterway Conservation

The Canoe Foundation "supports all to enjoy and benefit from the experience of paddling on our water in a sustainable manner". The Foundation does this through grant making that facilitates improvements to suitable landing and launching points and by promoting the conservation of inland waterways for the benefit of all sectors of the community.

Grants of between £2K and £20K are available to:

  • Set up new or improved launching points in urban or rural locations or as part of a water trail, such as steps or pontoons. Linked promotion of access points including signage or maps to increase participation and use.
  • Incorporate better accessibility or facilities at waterside locations which might improve the parking or changing aspects of a site.
  • Improve the quality of the waterways through support, for example practical kits, for a clean-up or an improved natural habitat.

Previously funded projects include improved disability access at Holme Pierrepont.

The next deadline for applications is 30th April 2019.
