Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
SWD are committed to changing society's perception of people with disabilities, and the way they regard themselves by providing the tools to build confidence and self-esteem.Harbour sailing, ocean racing, the youth program and the inshore and coastal training program are just some of the ways of achieving this. Our vision is to take ownership of our circumstances and create vehicles to demonstrate what can be achieved. SWD's mission is to heighten community awareness of the disabled. SWDs members believe that disabled people are able people, capable of participating in active and responsible roles within society and to be treated as equals. Our activities are aimed at helping people with a disability demonstrate their skills, dedication and commitment to achieving their goals. There are many levels of sailing that can be achieved and all sailors compete at the same level as the sea makes no allowances for anyone.
