Jubilee Sailing Trust – Case Study, January 2016
As National Projects Manager for Phab, a charity which promotes inclusion for people with and without disabilities, I am always looking to organise exciting and challenging projects which enable people to break down barriers, learn new skills and have a lot of fun whilst doing so!
Nine years ago Phab decided to offer our members the opportunity to try something a little bit different and sailing on a wonderful tall ship with the Jubilee Sailing Trust seemed the perfect venture and we have been sailing with them ever since.
As a project organiser I have always been impressed by the flexibility and friendliness of their office staff and as a voyage participant was very grateful of all the support and encouragement I received whilst I was on board.
Over the years the Phab members who have taken part have always come back to shore with the most amazing stories. The following is a quote from a Phab member who took part on a recent voyage:
“We have all learned a little bit about sailing and a lot about working together. Not one person returned to shore without a feeling of pride and achievement. Most importantly of all, we all had the most tremendous fun together.”
Rebecca Hargreaves, National Projects Manager, Phab.
