To ensure everyone can access the water with a safe, barrier-free, enriching experience.
Wetwheels offers a unique opportunity for disabled and disadvantaged people of all ages – including those with multiple, profound and complex impairments – to access the water.
Central to our experience is active participation – helping to broaden aspirations, increase confidence and directly impact on health and wellbeing.
We continually innovate through new technologies, and improve our experience through the excellence of our teams and feedback from participants.
We ensure a sustainable operation through a range of income streams, funding and support.
By 2025, we aim to support 12,000 people every year to participate in a Wetwheels experience across the UK, with the widest reach and awareness possible.
A Wetwheels experience challenges self-perceptions, extends horizons and opens up new opportunities. We ensure full wheelchair access to the boat – including a ramp to the steering position and adapted steering controls.
All are active participants, rather than simply passengers, with the opportunity to steer the vessel and learn seamanship alongside peers, friends and families.
Our own research tells us more than 80 per cent of Wetwheels’ participants have never previously been on the open water – which is something we want to change. Wetwheels is an inspiring organisation where perceived barriers are reassessed, new skills are learned and new-found independence is discovered. Participants are able to have a single experience or return over time.
