Charity number


Royal Yachting Association Centre of Excellence

Providing Sailing & water based activities for those who live with disability.

We are a financially independent charity and we do not receive any statutory funding whatsoever, our activities are run entirely by a team of hard working, dedicated volunteers. We are privilaged to hold the Queen's Award for Charities. 

During the 2015 season, we provided activities for over 2000 children and adult visitors with disabilities. This included 9 Special Schools attending on a regular basis, various groups from around the country and the Government Aiming High short breaks scheme for children with disabilities.

We are finally nearing completion of our state of the art £750,000 Boat House and require just £75,000 to build our own slipway onto Rudyard Lake and also to enhance the facilities available within the building to allow us to increase our capacity to serve the disbaled youngsters in the Potteries and North Midlands. We will complete the work during 2016 to enusre that we can provide our disabled users with the highest levels of privacy, dignity and  independence as is possible.

The new Slipway will provide a state of the art wheelchaire friendly Pontoon at a cost of £35,000 directly outside the Boathouse doors and some 30m in length. It will have 2 hoists plus a safe dedicated parking area for the wheelchairs whilst their users are out on the water.

We welcome visitors when they are in the area (Post Code ST13 8XB) and look forward to showing your our state of the art facilities. We appreciate any funds you may wish to donate to us to assist with our work for those who live with disability.
