Fleetwood is now one of the very few places in the UK that can say it has an accessible beach for wheelchair users.
We launched in September 2020 and, while we will always observe the on-going COVID-19 regulations, our intention is to offer a year-round service.
Beach wheelchairs are specially designed to travel across sand and shingle, lightweight and easy to manoeuvre - the chairs do require a carer to assist. From our 'Wheelbase' at Central Promenade, Fleetwood (opposite The Mount and New Boston hotels) we are just a few metres from the beach and several disabled parking spaces. For those who need assistance to transfer from chair to chair, we have a hoist (this also needs to be operated by a carer accompanying the chair user) and other equipment designed to make the visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Fleetwood Beach Wheelchairs is operated by a wonderful team of friendly volunteers and our running costs are covered by donations from the public and sponsors, and fund-raising channels.
These are extraordinary times with many challenges but we have to look to the future with hope and positivity. We believe services such as Fleetwood Beach Wheelchairs will be even more valuable in the months and years ahead, offering an opportunity for individuals and their families to create memories they will treasure forever.
Your support through the Wyre Community Lottery will help us achieve this and allow the service to grow.
