Beach Wheelchair scheme improves access for all
A popular beach wheelchair scheme providing year-round access to some of the most breathtaking beaches along the Pembrokeshire Coast is empowering more locals and visitors to explore this magnificent coastline than ever before.
The Beach Wheelchair scheme is run by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority with funding support from the Welsh Government and Visit Wales’s Brilliant Basics Fund.
Feedback from users has been hugely positive:
“My husband has recently become disabled, it's been a traumatic time for the whole family, having the wheelchair helped enormously, he could be part of our trip to the beach which was so vital and important. It was truly life changing.”
“Your wheelchair was amazing and made our holiday! My son was able to play with his dog in the sea for the first time ever just like everyone else!!”
The wheelchairs are hosted by local businesses around the Park, such as seaside cafes and activity providers. Available in a variety of sizes and styles, the wheelchairs are designed for users young and old, some of whom may use a wheelchair frequently or those who may find it hard to walk on sandy beaches. Other resources include roll-out trackways, all-terrain rollators and a mobile hoist.
Individuals bringing their own equipment accessories, such as harnesses, are advised to contact the project coordinator first to discuss fitting and compatibility. We also ask users to read individual chair/equipment instructions before booking, to ensure a fun and safe experience.
