The Wheelyboat Trust is a registered charity dedicated to providing disabled people with the opportunity and freedom to enjoy waters large and small all over the UK. Our role is to help and encourage venues open to the public to acquire Wheelyboats for their disabled visitors and to help groups and organisations acquire Wheelyboats for their own use.
Our vision is straightforward - open access for disabled people on waters everywhere via a range of Wheelyboat models to meet everybody’s needs.
Whether it's for the scenery or wildlife, sport or recreation, education or rehabilitation, lochs, reservoirs, lakes, ponds, rivers and canals are a magnet to millions of visitors throughout the year. However, by their very nature, access on and around these waters for wheelchair users and others with limited mobility is very much restricted. Our specially designed Wheelyboats overcome all the difficulties.
Wheelyboats provide their disabled users with the dignity of their own independence: they make the entire water accessible, are simplicity itself to board via the roll-on, roll-off bow ramp and the level deck provides access to every corner of the boat including the helm.
Nominations for this year's Alan Faulkner Memorial Award are now being sought. The winning game fishery, which in the judges' opinion provides the most outstanding service, facilities, opportunities and access, will be presented with the award and a 4hp Suzuki outboard at the CLA Game Fair, Ragley Hall, 19th to 21st July. Anyone can do the nominating including fishery managers/owners. There are no formal nomination forms, just email the Trust with your reasons why the fishery should be considered by the judges. We are delighted to announce that The Marquis of Hertford, owner of Ragley Hall, will present the award.
