CanalAbiity is a registered charity which provides fully adapted and accessible canal boats to enable people with disabilities to enjoy relaxing, and uplifting, holidays and day trips on the river.
Our vision is to facilitate "totally independent boating on the inland waterways for people with any disability", whereby a crew comprising solely of people with disabilities are able to cruise the inland waterways and attain the same benefits, enjoyment and achievements available to able bodied boaters.
CanalAbility aims to:
- To enable people with any disability to undertake boating activities in order to benefit from the spiritual and mental well being achieved by being on the river.
- To empower people with disability or disadvantage to achievements and aspirations not otherwise available.
- To encourage an appreciation and understanding of the river and its environment amongst the disabled and community groups for whom this experience would otherwise be difficult or impossible to achieve
- To build confidence, motivation, personal development and teamwork through boating activities for both service users and our volunteer team.
