Funded Accessible Watersports Applications Now Open

The Sports Foundation for the Disabled (SFD) have awarded Children's Sailing Trust funding to provide accessible watersports sessions for residents in Cornwall with physical disabilities or visual impairment. These sessions will take place at Trevassack Lake, where we offer additional support and use of our Changing Places facilities.


Thanks to SFD, you or your group have the opportunity to apply for fully funded watersports experiences with CST that could include:

Sailing, Swimming, Paddleboarding and Kayaking

Sessions will vary dependant on need and weather, but lots of fun is mandatory…

CST specialise in supporting nervous beginners through to advanced adventurers out on the water, so you’ll be in good hands. We’re experienced in SEND sessions for all ages and abilities and we’d love to help you feel the freedom of being on our 10 acre freshwater lake near Helston.

Please note, there is only availability for up to 27 participants so register your interest quickly!

Any person or group who wishes to be considered for this experience should complete the appropriate Expression of Interest (EOI) form above by 5th August 2022.

Sessions will vary dependant on need and weather, but fun is mandatory!
