Canoe Foundation Now Accepting Applications

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

Funding to improve the accessibility of available waterways and canoeing facilities and protect the natural environment.

Grants of between £500 and £10,000 are available to clubs, community groups, Parish Councils, Local Authorities or anyone in the UK with an active interest in improving access to water for recreational users and protecting the environment.

The focus for the current funding round is on:

  • Increasing and protecting public access points to water for recreational users.
  • Creation of sustainable launching and landing sites, to and alongside water, for all sectors of the community and abilities.
  • Protecting and enhancing the natural environment.

Grants for projects that are able to commence quickly may be awarded before the funding window closes, and therefore organisations are encouraged to apply early.

The fund is open until 11 April 2023.
