Forth & Tay Disabled Ramblers aims to promote health and wellbeing through recreational and social activities by enabling people with disabilities to access the outdoors in a barrier-free environment. Many new friendships have emerged since the group began and these extend beyond the ramble programme

There are opportunities for personal enrichment and the development of new skills for carers, members and for those wanting to be part of the management committee. Several committee members have done the European Computing Driving Licence. Other courses undertaken by carers, committee and members have included Desktop Publishing, Volunteer Management, Health and Safety, Assertiveness Training, Team Building, Marketing, First Aid, Digital Photography and Website Management. Training for volunteers in Moving and Handling, First Aid, Minibus Driver Qualification (MiDAS) and any other relevant training is available.
