Access and Environment

Protecting the places we paddle

Access to water and protecting the places we paddle are fundamental to British Canoeing. We will continue campaigning for safe, clean and accessible places to paddle.

British Canoeing is committed to securing fair, shared and sustainable access to water across the country. 

Protection of our environment is of paramount importance and you can find details of the work British Canoeing is doing and how you can get involved through these pages.

Our Places to Paddle team is dedicated to supporting the needs of members and the wider paddling community. 

Support from volunteers is vital to our work. We hope this section of the website will inspire you to take action and make a difference locally. 

We have provided useful resources to inform, educate and support.

If you have something specific you require help or advice on, please do not hesitate to contact our team

You can find details of locally available advice on the local contacts page.
