To facilitate freedom for individuals with mobility issues to enjoy the beach and experience the sea.

by Berwick Community Trust in Berwick Upon Tweed, England, United Kingdom

This project will enable residents and visitors who are wheelchair users to access the beach and the sea using wheelchairs specifically designed to move over sand and into the sea.   We aim to provide free access to a choice of two beach wheelchairs with an electric hoist housed in a building which will provide a private changing space. 

It will also provide a member of staff 1 day per week to service the wheelchairs and train up volunteers and families in the use of the wheelchairs. We aim to ensure that all members of our community and visitors to our town can participate and enjoy the beach with their family and friends.
