Accessing local facilities
Vale Plus works hard to provide meaningful and life enhancing experiences for adults with learning difficulties in South Wales. Although based by the coast, they have been unable to deliver water based opportunities. Until now.
Celtic Capability Sailing is a new charity a stone's throw away from Vale Plus, that offers RYA Sailability sessions to a diverse and inclusive sailing community.
Learning to sail
Celtic Capability Sailing and Vale Plus have come together to create a 6 week programme to include classroom based learning and learning to sail with experienced instructors.
This project will support adults with learning difficulties to have new experiences develop their confidence and have fun. Participants will be supported and encouraged to access the facilities that are on their doorstep and, if they want to, to go on to take up sailing as a new hobby or sport.
A Lasting Legacy
Once the programme has been developed, run and reviewed it will be offered to other disadvantaged groups in the area, maximising the future impact of this initial pilot. The support you give us today could have a lasting impact for years to come.
