Support Us

Our charitable objectives are to provide well-being benefits to communities within easy reach of Hertfordshire’s Grand Union Canal, and particularly to people who are in any way disadvantaged.  Read what our clients say about their experiences with us.

As an all-volunteer organisation we employ no paid staff.  This means that we can provide very affordable boating experiences at prices which are discounted for disabled or disadvantaged groups. Our income from boat hiring covers our operating costs and a small contribution to reserves.  For capital projects needed to sustain and expand our activity and for continued support to special groups, we depend on grants and donations.

Partnering with Waterways Experiences for Corporate Social Responsibility goals

Our current strategic plan includes:

  • A major capital project to build a fourth boat for our fleet
  • Continuation of our fundraising to allow us to provide Enable holidays for small groups of disadvantaged teenagers .

We believe that both these areas offer worthwhile advantages in terms of partnership and support opportunities.  Please email us at if you are interested in working with us to raise your profile in West Hertfordshire as a socially responsible company or organisation.  We would be delighted to discuss how we might help you to achieve your CSR objectives, whether they relate to socially responsible investment, developing relationships with employees and customers or environmental protection and sustainability.
