Geographical remit: 


  1. To assist in the relief of distress and hardship suffered by young people, the elderly, the  vulnerable, and other people with special needs in the London Borough of Camden (andadjoining areas).
  2. To advance the education of young people and others in regard to canals in Camden and adjoining areas, their history, their uses and their environment.

CCNA gives the general public and disadvantaged community groups an experience of a different aspect of London by taking a canal trip on a traditional narrowboat.

We train people to crew a historic narrowboat to National Community Boat Association standards, including the Certificate in Community Boat Management.
