Cotswold Boatmobility is busy coming out of mothballs to offer more disabled people the opportunity to try the wellbeing benefits of being near water, and you can’t get much closer to the water than paddling with five others in one of their five KataKanus.
There is also a Wheelyboat available which is an electrically propelled wheelchair accessible boat, it can even be steered from a wheelchair.
Operating on the restored length of the Stroudwater Navigation between Stonehouse and Stroud, the charity was set up in 2015 by Jan Thomas.
The charity has grown over the years and can now offer up to 37 people, service users, carers, friends and family and volunteers two-hour cruises.
To get the charity back on track they have applied for a grant from the Calor Rural Community Fund.
