Rivertime Accessible Boating Charity 01628 780700

Partner With Us

RIVERTIME ACCESSIBLE BOATING has been set up to develop boating for adults and children with all types of disabilities and special needs.

The Charity has created and operates a number of models on the River Thames and is actively looking to develop further:

1. From their base at Bisham Abbey – Children and Adults can access the water in a number of specialist craft, depending on their needs. 

2. From Partner Sites on the Thames – School aged children visit other sites on the Thames and the venue sponsors and hosts the event using the equipment, personnel and expertise of the charity.

The Charity is in talks already to grow beyond the Thames and find suitable venues and people to set up ‘Accessible Boating’ Centres Nationally, replicating the success and model already proven to work by the Charity.

Partners would take on the brand and become a recognised ‘Accssible Boating’Centre’, with a provided website, ISP and receive training and access to the expertise already built up by Rivertime Accessible Boating.

Partner with us on The Thames

Accessible Boating Thames will partner with your organisation, subject to the suitability of the venue. 

The charity will be able to supply the specialist craft, expertise and IP to the organisation and help identify suitable schools to invite. 

Typically events take place in one week, in sessions divided by morning and afternoons, and the SEND schools book in advance. 

It is the responsibility of the partner venue to fund the event, through what ever means are appropriate. 

Apart from the huge benefits for the children and staff taking part, further benefits include:

-Supporting a local charity that is based on the water. 

-Long-term collaboration with SEND schools

-Opportunity to involve people in your organisation/community

-Fulfill Possible Outreach requirements

Become a Recognised Accessible Boating Centre

Accessible Boating National Centres

Rivertime Accessible Boating has established a successful model along with a track record and a suite of documents for operation for getting both adults and school aged children on to the water, taking part in boating, depending on their circumstances. 

The charity has worked tirelessly to break down perceived barriers for equality in boating and has achieved some substantial breakthroughs. 

The charity has the support and interest of HRH The Princess Royal and has been consulting with the Minister for Disabilities along with major National organisations based with water based activities.

It is the intention and vision of the Trustees to now move forward with their plan to find organisations willing to adopt the values, brand and working methods of the charity and to set up more Accessible Boating Centres across the UK. 

Thank you for your interest and support
