About 5 years ago the Centre welcomed the first wheelchair user for a school residential visit. Since this time, with continued support from Aiming High, the Centre has improved in every respect of providing access to both the buildings, facilities and the activities.

We now have a modern respite suite with specialist bed, bathroom and hoisting facilities. Instructors have been trained and are now experienced in using the specialist equipment to provide access to the activities. We are confident to work in partnership with teachers and support staff to provide realistic challenges in an outdoor residential setting. We are proud that the sessions such as sailing, canoeing, climbing, high ropes and biking are now accessible to all abilities and that the Centre hosts special schools for residential visits on a regular basis.

Here is just some of what we can offer:

  • Motorised remote wheelchair lift and additional ramps.
  • Special needs suite, which includes remote motorised control bed, overhead tracking system with raising/lowering hoist for access to disabled toilet/bathroom (Sky frame system), motorised remote controlled raising bath with integrated pull down changing bench and shower facilities and motorised remote controlled raising hand basin.
  • A variety of different specialist activity equipment, which include mechanical hoists and trolleys, specialist harnesses, support equipment, transfer devices, a tandem bicycle and wheely boat.
