Accessible Boating Thames offers the opportunity for disabled and disadvantaged adults, children and young people to develop a long-term involvement with the river and accessible water sports by providing a safe, supportive and stimulating environment.
Accessible Boating Thames intends to hold a bi-annual regatta.
Accessible Boating Thames uses various boats and sailing craft for safe, supervised use of people with varying abilities and intends to hold a bi-annual regatta. We provide opportunities for people of varying abilities to associate together and to take part in boating and other water based activities. We also provide various means for accessing the boats for those who would otherwise find such access difficult.
Safety and Freedom
Providing safe recreational opportunities for those who are disabled or have limited abilities allows our clients to enjoy the freedom of movement available on the River Thames. It is hoped that the charity will provide a model for similar developments throughout the UK. Accessible Boating Thames is open to people with a wide range of abilities but our niche area and our expertise & equipment focuses on accessibility
