Rough Castle Experiences

We are delighted to partner with Rough Castle Experiences in this unique initiative to improve footfall into Falkirk and our canal network.  It is a long held belief that local people should benefit from such initiatives and this project offers an opportunity for local people to develop skills, receive practical training, improve employment prospects, gain a reference, decrease isolation, increase physical activity and be given the opportunity to take pride in their part of a new local initiative.

We offer bespoke projects to meet the needs of different groups and would welcome the opportunity to discuss partnership opportunities as we seek to engage those living in canal side communities with our canals.  Contact lesley@re-union.org.uk
