The Coquet Shorebase Trust is a community based registered charity located on the Northumberland coast at Amble.

We utilise water based activity to enhance the lives of people of all ages from 8 – 80. As a charity we work with all sections of the community. A principal aim of our community activity is to help those who feel disenfranchised to develop the self confidence to become active members of the local community.

As a means to funding our charitable activity we provide water sports opportunities and training for all.
