Access to Adventure

To acquire the best specialist kit, so we can offer adapted/accessible adventures in the Scottish countryside to wheelchair users.

We did it!

On 13th Mar 2017 we successfully raised £415 with 8 supporters in 56 days

Access to Adventure is a start-up Scottish company which aims to offer a comprehensive range of rewarding countryside adventures across the best of Scotland's countryside, to disabled individuals, or to families and groups of friends where one or more group members have a disability. We aspire to full inclusivity, where the activity is adapted so that every group member can participate fully. Where the group or individual requires it, we will work with them to create a full holiday, including vetted transport and accommodation as well as the range of countryside adventures. The fun on offer includes off-road rambles in beautiful surroundings, Scotland's sky and wildlife by night, kayaking, accompanied hillwalking, dolphin-watching boat trips, wild swimming, guided birdwatching, camping and much more, to suit the client and to build up with them into just what they want to do.

This project is to help us to acquire the best specialist kit, so we can offer adapted/accessible adventures to wheelchair users.  This includes a privacy tent/portable commode for dignified comfort breaks; 2 powered off-road wheelchairs; 2 hand-cranked mountain trikes; 2 adapted kayaks for use by paraplegic clients; a wheeled carriage for kayak to water transfer; a portable hoist for wheelchair to activity transfer;  and a set of combination straps/seatbelts for securing wheelchairs and their occupants into an adapted minibus. We currently have none of these things, as a start-up.
