The Nancy Oldfield Trust
The aim of the Nancy Oldfield Trust is to provide the opportunity for people who are disabled or disadvantaged to enjoy a day out on the water, try new activities, improve their self confidence and increase their environmental awareness.
Anyone who is disadvantaged, or has a disability; physical or emotional, temporary or permanent, regardless of their age can enjoy sailing, canoeing, pedal boating, paddleboarding, wildlife watching and motor boat cruises. You are very welcome to bring family members and carers with you!
We are entirely funded through donations, charitable trusts, grants and bequests. The actual cost of providing and an activity session is £34 per person
Our registered Charity Number is 1068549.

The Centre is situated in the village of Neatishead on Barton Broad. A fully accessible bungalow on site sleeps up to 10 in four bedrooms with en-suite wet rooms. Groups can stay for a weekend, or a week, and take advantage of all the boating activities while they are here.
Our Amazing Team
We have a small team of knowledgeable and qualified members of staff together with approximately 75 trained and experienced volunteers, who support the boating activities of the Trust. Meet our staff….
