Canal Community Liaison Officer

Working for the Waterways Trust Scotland the CCLO can be found out and about along the canal in Glasgow. The main role is to inspire people to get out to learn about and make use of their local canal. This can be teaching children about the canals wildlife during boat trips, leading walks to encourage people to get more active, working with volunteers carrying out practical conservation work, and supporting the work of local 'Friends' groups. Past partnership work has produced the Forth & Clyde canal board game, a canal reminiscence kit,  and a set of walks leaflets available in hard copy or online.
