SWD is a not-for-profit organisation. We are Creators of Optimism.
We encourage people with a disability or those in difficult circumstances to see things in a new way.
By showing what's possible, we challenge society’s perception of those facing disability or disadvantage.
Join SWD and become a Creator of Optimism.
If you want to come sailing read about our sailing programs. For those affected by disadvantage or disability, sailing is free.
When SWD caught up with students from Lake Illawarra High School's Winds of Change program, six months after it finished, we learned that it is making a significant difference in the lives of students from that cohort.
This is most likely because Winds of Change creates a safe space for engagement and teamwork. Skye's story helps answer the question, Do SWD's Programs Really Make a Difference?
