Our Vision

Our drive is to support and help improve access across Scotland, to enable everyone to lead the life they choose. No one should be forced into living in isolation.

Friendly Access (SC045029) is a charity which focuses on creating and improving accessibility, with a holistic approach towards everyone, regardless of disability or condition, using three main elements, technology, sport and education.

Awareness is great. Understanding is everything.

Brought to you by the people who put ‘autism friendly’ and ‘relaxed’ performances into theatres across the UK and firmly focused on setting the bar even higher for inclusion everyday, everywhere.

In December 2022, in partnership with the Scottish Surfing Federation, SurfABLE Scotland coached and led Scotland’s first para surfer, Jade Edward, in Scotland’s debut onto the world stage in The International Surfing Association (ISA) World Para Surf Comp, California. Jade (aged 10) is the youngest ever female to compete, and first Scottish surfer to reach a semi-final place in a World surfing competition.
