Re-union is an organisation that uses the Union Canal to make a difference to people's lives by inviting them to share in the social and cultural life of the canal.
Re-Union Canal Boats is a social enterprise operating on and around Edinburgh’s Union Canal and in Falkirk on the Forth & Clyde Canal. We offer boat and event hire and volunteering opportunities focused on health and wellbeing, environmental and boating
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 are identified and driven by the volunteers needs and requests.
We engage meaningfully with canal side 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 coordinating 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
