Improving your facility
Welcome to the British Canoeing ‘Improving Your Facility’ section. These pages offer some inspiration and guidance on developing your facility, whether it is a brand new build or a refurbishment of your existing base.
Taking on a project big or small can be a daunting task for anyone, so here we hope to provide some information on how to get started, ideas about managing a successful project and where to look for partnership funding.
British Canoeing is committed to supporting its clubs and centres to improve the environment in which our sport takes place. If you don’t find the information you require on our pages then please contact one of our team and we will support you as best we can.
British Canoeing is pleased to be able to offer support for organisations planning to improve their facilities. The Capital Investment Programme (CIP) scheme has up to £1.5m to allocate over the period 2013-17 towards projects large and small. The funding allocated to British Canoeing by Sport England is aimed at projects that support our strategic objectives to increase regular participation and talent pathways.Read more →
