The Scuba Trust
The Scuba Trust began life in 1996 and was founded as a charity to organise scuba diving holidays abroad for people with disabilities. Today it has grown into one of the UKs leading dive organisations to help individuals with disabilities (and their friends) learn to scuba dive.
Staffed entirely with volunteers, the Trust arranges training, helps secure funding and liaises with specifically trained instructors so that everyone - no matter what level of disability - can get diving. Certifying agencies includes PADI, BSAC and IAHD. There is a monthly intro to diving session in the pool as well as the always popular holidays.
Scuba Travel have been working closely with the Scuba Trust for a number of years. At least once a year a group of soon to be divers, buddies and instructors head out to Egypt to get some training in and of course brilliant diving. Working closely with the Scuba Trust, we are proud to play our part in enabling everybody to enjoy the wonderful world of scuba diving.

The Scuba Trust holds monthly introduction to diving sessions in an indoor swimming pool, supervised by a volunteer team of friendly dive professionals from a range of dive organisations, including BSAC, PADI and [AHD. These dive sessions have been designed to cater for most disabilities but are also open to the able-bodied, creating a non-prejudiced atmosphere. The Trust also organises regular holidays specifically targeted to meet the needs of the disabled community with regards to hotel accommodation and diving facilities.
