The Canoe Foundation has announced that the next closing date for applications is the 31st January 2024.

The Canoe Foundation provides grants of between £500 to £10,000 to promote new or improved access points for canoe trails on to moving water, estuaries, canals and reservoirs.

The projects supported include:

  • Launch and landing platforms, steps or ramps.
  • Improvements to pathways and accessible routes to the water’s edge.
  • Signage and information that promotes positive behaviour (Countryside Code, “Check, Clean, Dry”, take your litter home etc).
  • Designated or additional parking for water users.
  • Works to address erosion and create more sustainable access points.
  • Projects that actively engage water users in helping protect/enhance the waterway environment
  • Projects that can benefit more than one user group.
  • Projects that benefit all paddlers, rather than private member facilities.
