Feedback from other, current, Wetwheels Operators tells us that many of our disabled participants have been inspired to see Geoff Holt, himself a severely disabled wheelchair user, run the Wetwheels project and to skipper the boat.
We realise that in this respect, we have something very special indeed that we can build upon for the future.
We have identified a small number of mentors, inspirational and successful people with disabilities, who have kindly agreed to donate their time to help the Mentoring programme.
Using Wetwheels as the hub of this activity, mentoring sessions, by their very nature are time intensive and we can only run these sessions by prior arrangement as often as budgets allow. Mentoring may span several months and involve more than one activity or event.
Clients get to spend time with a mentor who will share some of their life experiences. Confidentiality is respected at all times. Our aim is to demonstrate, through our mentors (who share many of the challenges faced by our disabled clients), that it is possible to improve your life-chances by applying simple but effective techniques.
Mentoring can be through private arrangement or through referral from a health professional.
