Volunteers are the heart of our SWD community.
Our volunteers help us by engaging with and mentoring our young sailors, looking after our boats, taking photographs, writing blogs, recruiting members... the list goes on.
SWD volunteers become part of a friendly and welcoming community, while learning new skills and making new friends.
SWD sponsorship can give you naming rights, badging, significant media opportunity and direct exposure, through electronic database marketing.
Your staff can enjoy the incredible opportunity to get involved in our life changing programs, and know they are making a difference.
Sponsorship packages are tailormade to each individual organisation.
SWD relies on donations to continue to create optimism and change.
Any donation you give - however small - will make a difference. Let's keep SWD sailing and keep the smiles on the faces of our sailors who cope with disability and disadvantage every day.
Direct donations are fully tax deductible.
You'll meet some of our volunteers and crew and some of the parents and children who come on the boat.
Our community is growing every day and we welcome you to come and engage with us there.
Are you facing the challenge of disability or disadvantage? Or are you teaching or caring for someone with disability or disadvantage?
You can create optimism by coming sailing with us. Check out our Try Sail, Winds of Change, Racing or Carers' programs.
SWD is a gentle place. SWD does not not judge you and you are safe to be yourself.
