QEF's Accessible Canal Boat

Our accessible canal boat, the QEF Jubilee, has recently undergone an extensive refit to prepare it for this year’s boating season, thanks to your generous donations.

Wheelchair users, or people with complex disabilities, can have their options limited when it comes to finding accommodation with the right facilities to meet their needs. It’s rarer still to be able to find accessible holiday options that include the freedom to take a trip that involves travelling from place to place. But that’s just the problem that the QEF Jubilee solves!

With a fully adjustable accessible bed, ceiling hoists and tracking, a walk-in/roll in shower room, accessible flushing toilet, modified controls, and wheelchair charging facilities. The QEF Jubilee can sleep up to eight people, including three wheelchair users.

To get it ready for 2018 our canal boat has had a fresh coat of paint, a full service, new soft furnishings and kitchen equipment, and the latest lifejackets. That’s all thanks to our wonderful supporters, who have provided the vital funds to keep the QEF Jubilee shipshape!
