Inclusive Beaches Open in Ulster

We are delighted to announce that the Mae Murray Foundation has now opened two further inclusive and fully accessible beaches – Cranfield, near Newry and *NEW for 2022* Portstewart Strand.

Wooden Spoon Ulster previously helped Mae Murray to open up the first fully accessible beach at Benone in Northern Ireland some two or three years back. Since then, the foundation have gone on to champion further inclusive beaches which are accessible for children with disabilities.

Inclusive beaches allow people of all ages and abilities to take part, have fun, and be included in a trip to the seaside. They provide access, parking, all-terrain beach equipment, and disabled toilets. Toilets will always offer hoisting and adult sized changing bench facilities – to full Changing Places standard whenever possible. The all-terrain beach equipment is available for hire free of charge to members – membership of the Mae Murray Foundation is also free.
