Venue DescriptionAt JST our Vision is of an inclusive world where we can all contribute and feel valued. Our unique Mission is to give people of mixed abilities and circumstances the freedom to explore their ability, potential and place in the world through inclusive adventures at sea. JST aims to make a difference to the lives of all our participants, but we know that our impact is especially strong for some social groups, including disabled people and those with mental health conditions or long-term ill-health issues; the lonely or socially isolated; those dealing with significant challenges or change in their career or educational life; and people from disadvantaged backgrounds, including disadvantaged youth. During our inclusive sailing experiences people become deeply immersed in an intense and challenging ocean adventure where conditions can be unpredictable. Diverse teams work together to perform tasks with real responsibilities. In our adaptive and enabling environment, everyone is seen and treated as equal and contributes to the best of their ability. Aboard our ships barriers break down, differences disappear, social bonds form and people start to appreciate the ability and potential in others. Beneficiaries leave our voyages with new skills and more aware of their own strengths and capabilities. They gain beliefs and attitudes that help them tackle the limitations in their life. They feel more free to explore their ability, potential and place in the world.
