Life Skills Project

We have successfully run a number of day projects based on ‘Angel II of Islington’ for people with learning difficulties and to help with the development of life skills.

Facilities on the boat enable the group with assistance from the group leaders to plan, cook and enjoy a meal together.  The security of the steel boat is ideal for a gentle outdoor experience while the canal-side scenery passes by and as the passengers gain confidence they can join in some of the boat activities, pushing lock gates or, under the supervision of the skipper, experience steering the boat.
