Making Change

Every project that we get involved with is designed to make a difference!

We recognise that there is a lot we can do beyond just the bricks and mortar of physical building. Through discussion with people who live and work in the local communities along the canal, we've tried to bring life, colour and activity to the area by investing in projects that "make a difference" to people's perception and awareness of the canal. Some of these community based development projects are complete, others are underway and some are still at the ideas stage.
