Join the Outdoor Partnership’s initiative to get more disabled people of all ages from across North Wales, active in the outdoors.
We are challenging disabled people, their family and friends to give an outdoor adventure activity a go. Activities will include sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding (SUP), climbing, hill walking, cycling, rowing and surfing.
Development sessions are organised for all those who want to progress their skills in a particular adventurous activity. Some may even pickup a proficiency award for their newly gained skills.
The aim of the initiative is to increase participation of disabled people within the three counties. In 2014, Disability Sport Wales quoted that 24% of the population of Wales are disabled, of which, only 3.4% participate in sport and recreation in North Wales.
