Running bikes in Dorset?

Hello everyone. Before a series of strokes in the last eight months I was a keen runner , swimmer , cyclist and very active person. I have left sided weakness with balance and coordination problems. However I still want to participate in some sporting activities. I live near Bournemouth in Dorset. I have heard about ' running bikes' , which seem to be a trike frame, with normal size bike wheels,a centrally situated seat for support, no pedals so you just run/ walk inside the frame to propel yourself forward. As far as I can find out there are clubs in the north of england and Scotland but none in Dorset. They seem to be used a lot by adults and young people with Cerebral Palsy and similar conditions. 
Has anyone had any experience of them ?
Does anyone know someone ,living in Dorset who would like to  try one ?
