Re-Union Canal Boats… who we are
Re-Union Canal Boats is a social enterprise based on and around Edinburghâ€™s Union Canal. We built and launched our first pilot boat in 2004 which was replaced by our widebeam canal boat in June 2008.
Re-Union offer training and support to a wide range of volunteers in crewing (RYA) first aid, hospitality, health and hygiene and a variety of other courses that areÂ identifiedÂ and driven by the volunteers needs and requests.
We engage meaningfully with canalside communities from Edinburgh Quay to Wester Hailes through a variety of projects including canoe building, supporting the development of a canoe club, orchard planting which is now growing into a healthy eating garden project and co-ordinating community consultations and the Edinburgh Canal Festival.
Re-Union bring people together to develop their skills, learn from one another and realise their potential whilst maintaining and promoting the canal as a remarkable asset for the community.
