Disability groups

All activities are delivered with people and their varying level of ability in mind. We focus on what the individual can do and try to enable them to push that bit further by working with them and our adaptive equipment.

We are all individuals and it is very rare when one solution fits all – so the individual is important.

We have certain equipment which can help with some of the activities we offer varying from mobile hoists (that can be used down by the lake or up in the hills) and sliding boards/sheets to specialist harnesses and wheelchairs (used for climbing and abseiling).

Our expert instructors have a real "can do" attitude and approach with the sensitivity to listen and help enable all to achieve.

"The activities were more advanced than anything we'd ever done as a group before, but they were really tailored to our needs, and Chris our activities person was excellent."

"Simply amazing. Everyone was excellent with our group and made us feel welcome whilst tailoring everything to our needs."

David Ward, Ladybarn Project, Manchester
