Cara delivered an incredible site specific Inclusive Adventure Activities training course for our staff. The tutor’s willingness to share their knowledge, experience and practical guidance in an impressive range of scenarios was vital. The highlight of the course was that the majority of it was on a practical basis, where our staff took on realistic scenarios which have proved to be an incredible asset in the daily operations of the park to date. The experience they have gained benefits all groups whether school, sports or corporate to bring the participants experience to a level as to which everyone is included.

The Inclusive Adventure Activities Training course removed a lot of unknowns for us showed us in that it is really not that difficult or that we require a lot of specialised equipment to be more inclusive. The participants who completed the training course felt empowered, excited and are looking forward to including people with disabilities in the activities and programmes we offer.
