Well great news, iCAN Experiences aims to help! That's because we're the UK's only gift experience provider aimed squarely at disabled people! Whether it's a gift for a friend or family member, or whether you're treating yourself, you'll find experiences that suit a wide range of tastes and occasions! And if you don't have a disability, that doesn't matter, our gift experiences are for those without a disability too!

Why buy your gift experience with us?

Great Value Gift Experiences

It is no more expensive to buy a gift experience from us than it is to go direct to the operator. We work on a commission basis, so you can rest assured that you won't be paying a premium for our gift experiences ' but you will be getting the benefit of our research.

Our Gift Experience providers

Our company specialises in finding the right gift experience for disabled people, we know how difficult or worrying it can be to find an activity or experience that is suited to the needs of your loved one. That is why we have carefully selected the activity operators we work with, they know that a customer with an iCAN gift Experience voucher is likely to have a disability and requires that little extra time to make their experience just perfect!

Hassle-Free Experiences

What makes us unique is that every location is vetted prior to adding it to our catalogue, this ensures that we get the correct level of information for you. We know that it can be tricky and a hassle to find out what you are getting, so we provide you with a good level of detail that enables you to make an informed decision. If your gift recipient is visually impaired, you will find considerations for guide dogs; if they have restricted leg movement, you will find information about the terrain; you will also find details on the availability of disabled facilities such as disabled toilets, disabled parking etc.

Large Print and Braille Gift Packs - perfect for Visually Impaired

By default, the gift recipient will get an eVoucher that is delivered via email, this can be scheduled for a particular date, making that perfectly timed gift! If you want to give someone a 'present', gift packs are available in standard print and if your gift recipient is visually impaired, large print or Braille format gift packs are available.

Inclusive activities with mainstream operators

In most cases we work with main stream experience operators who promote inclusivity for people with disabilities. This has the added benefit of allowing people with a disability to share an experience with a friend or family member without a disability. Maybe you're a parent looking for the perfect gift for your child and want to enjoy the amazing experience together? A great example of this is our Wind Tunnel Skydiving Duo Experience, where people with or without a disability can enjoy a truly amazing experience together.

Our Passionate, Visually Impaired Founder

We are passionate about helping disabled people to enjoy some of life's amazing experiences. Our Founder Paul Nicol is blind. It is Paul's personal experience and passion that inspired him to create a gift Experience company for disabled people. Despite being blind, Paul has done a number of exciting activities over the years, which built his confidence at a difficult time transitioning from being fully sighted to blind. Paul's passion is to encourage others with a disability to try new activities, maybe activities they never imagined they would be able to do (such as the iCAN Blind Supercar Driving experience).

Find activities by disability

The "Browse by Disability" feature allows you to filter our entire catalogue of activities by disability, so if you're looking for activities for the Visually Impaired / Blind, Hard of Hearing / Deaf, Restricted Arm or Restricted Leg then this is an easy way to find out what's suitable. If it is unclear what any of these mean, then please visit the "Disability Classification" page which elaborates on each of these. If you are unsure as to whether your disability is covered, do get in touch using the details on the contact page, we will always try our best to help you to experience something amazing!
