Re-Union supports and encourages communities to engage positively with the canal, to promote its heritage, environment and amenity, with a view to encouraging more local people to use the canal to their benefit. We have been operating since 2004 working with canal-side communities near the Union Canal, originally from a base in Edinburgh. In 2012 we established a second base in Falkirk, extending our work to communities living beside the Forth and Clyde Canal.

We have delivered a range of projects around volunteering, employability and lock-keeping as well as a number of community projects such as a community orchard, a variety of events including the Edinburgh Canal Festival, together with environmental improvement and health & well-being programmes. Projects and initiatives generally are instigated in partnership with our volunteers and stakeholders, and all projects aim to invest in our volunteers and trainees as well as developing links with canal-side communities.

As a social enterprise, we offer private hire trips on our boat, the Lochrin Belle, as well as a reduced rate for community group and charity hire.

We are now taking online bookings for trips on Lochrin Belle!
