The Scuba Trust enables people with disabilities to scuba dive.
The charity has been teaching people to scuba dive for over 20 years.
We have qualified experienced instructors who have taught people with a wide range of disabilities. This includes paraplegics, quadriplegics, spinal injuries, motor neuron, blind and autistic.
Scuba diving needs very little specialist equipment to give the exhilarating weightless experience. Wheelchair users leave the chair behind and can drift over coral reefs under their own propulsion or aided by currents and experienced buddies.
Training currently takes place near Ascot in a pool. We can provide all equipment for a simple 'try dive' which can then lead to recognised qualifications.
We organise at least two group holidays a year. One is always to the Red Sea. The other is often farther afield. In recent years we have taken groups to Mexico, Oman, Grenada and Indonesia. All participants including the Instructors pay for their own training and holidays.
Social events are also organised.
It really is possible for almost everyone to experience this surprisingly accessible sport.
