The Forest of Dean is a recognised centre for walking and biking and is well served by trails and other surfaced access.
For people with physical disability, poor health, sensory impairment or some other inhibiting condition there may however be a need for some powered assistance, specialised interpretation or other appropriate media to enable them to enjoy the benefits that others take for granted.
This is currently difficult with limited facilities available but this Foresters Forest project provides opportunities for more people to access the Forest of Dean.
If you would like to learn more about Walking with Wheels, please call 01594 822073 or fill in our online booking form.
Walking with Wheels provide all-terrain electric wheelchairs (called trampers) for hire at just £2.50 an hour from Pedalabikeaway / Cannop Cycle Centre. Specialised guides and other support (written, pictorial or oral including the Hidden Heritage App) is also available to enable people who might otherwise be disadvantaged to enjoy the beauty and heritage of the Forest of Dean.
FVAF support and run a number of projects that involve volunteers and help to improve the well-being for those within the Forest of Dean who are disadvantaged in one way or another.
