Disabled Afloat Riverboats Trust provides trips and holidays to disabled passengers as individuals. Their risk assessment procedures enable care home managers and others to assess the risks for the people in their care.
DART provide boating experiences for people with physical, visual, aural or learning disabilities together with their carers, families and friends. They welcome unaccompanied individuals, people with a carer, people with other family members, people with friends, small groups with one or more carers and carers looking for respite. In fact the only rule is that there should be one disabled person on board!
DART volunteers will be raising money in 2012 by manning the tea room at Tewkesbury Abbey this weekend on September 15th. The tea room usually serves home-made cakes and scones, as well as delicious home-made soup and baked potatoes or sandwiches. They were awarded first place in Cotswold Life’s Food and Drink Awards 2011 so they were officially theirLocal Tea Shop of the Year 2011. If you are in Gloucestershire or would just like to visit to support them they would love to see you.
The Disabled Afloat Riverboats Trust are always in need of volunteers to help organise and run their trips. In particular they always need people to train as trip managers, skippers, crew and for catering.
