Volunteer experiences (what our volunteers say)

In our volunteers’ own words…

What’s life like as a volunteer at Waterways Experiences? Let’s see what some of our volunteers have to say about why they volunteer and what they get out of it.

Here are a few quotes from responses to a survey asking volunteers what was the main reason they joined Waterways Experiences – have a look as see if any of these reasons could apply to you:

“ Enjoying being outdoors, and really interested in the canals and boats “

“ Fell in love with it as a passenger on a trip! “

“ Had own boat, missed being on the water “

“ Had time and like helping less able plus ethos of this charity (nobody is paid) “

“ Helping disadvantaged people, being on the canal “

“ Helping out and keeping busy “

“ I enjoy the canal and love the idea that this opens it up to everyone with no limits “

“ I enjoy the canals and I work with people with disabilities “

“ Satisfaction providing Enable holidays to young people with special needs “
