Fully independent of all waterways authorities, the Accessible Waterways Association (AWA) has been set up to inform, represent, and assist people who live with disabilities, impairments or accessibility issues, and who want to enjoy the Inland Waterways and their surrounding environments. This may be as a boater (either living aboard or holidaying), a hire-boat owner, an angler, a cyclist, a gongoozler, a walker/wheeler on the towpaths, or a volunteer or staff member of any of the many waterways authorities.


Meets with appropriate representatives and personal of the various waterways authorities. This can be either online or on site.

Campaigns through Social Media and Website.

Interacts with members to identify needs.
