Why join our faceboat community?

SWD exists to offer opportunities to people facing disability or disadvantage. SWD regularly acts as a catalyst for change where individuals develop a more optimistic outlook and enjoy personal growth and improved life outcomes.


SWD's programs are inclusive, supportive and challenging. The focus is on developing optimism and working as a team to find solutions to problems. Regular participation and connection with our mentors raises self-esteem and self-confidence and improves life skills.

faceboat is the on-line community of Sailors with disABILITIES (SWD). Just like our on-water community, our faceboat online community is a supportive, inclusive place where donors can share stories and information.
