Life is better by water

Life is better by water

Canal and River Trust are the charity who look after and bring to life 2,000 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 does make us feel happier and healthier.

Across the West Midlands, 559 miles of canals weave their way through richly vibrant and culturally diverse communities. Around 1.75 million people live within 1km of the waterways and around 51% of the population of Birmingham live within walking distance of their local canal.

Not only do we focus on community health and well-being, but we can also help your business by engaging with your workforce to come and enjoy an event on the canal.

We can offer companies a beautiful environment to get their employees and colleagues away from the daily grind and relax by the water and appreciate the beautiful surroundings of what nature has to offer while making a real difference in their local community.
