Special Needs

Here at Glenridding Activity Centre we are proud to be able to offer individuals and groups living with a disability the opportunity to enjoy life in the great outdoors. The mission of the team is simple: to ensure the happiness and well-being of the participants by sharing with them ‘The Magic of Ullswater’.

We are proud to be affiliated with the Royal Yachting Association’s Sailability program which gets over 40 000 young people and adults with disabilities introduced to sailing every year. Our fleet of Traditional Sailing Boats are perfect for groups and individuals and we can offer anything from a 1 hour Taster Session to a more formal 6 week course.

You are more than welcome to visit our Centre to see our facilities and the boats that we use, if you are planning on bringing a group we may even be able to arrange a complimentary sail to give you a taste of what we can offer.
