A unique Ripon based charity specialising in enabling those with extreme disabilities (and those without disabilities) experience the exhilarating sport of scuba diving.
We have the vision to see what people with extreme special needs are capable of achieving.
The families and carers have the faith to believe in us and our method of instruction.
Those with special needs have the courage to take part in a sport that is seen as an elitist sport.
Vision, Faith, Courage working hand in hand to improve the health, confidence and social skills of those with Special Needs.
Our courses are all exceptionally good value, as a charity we don’t have the overheads of a commercial business (no one gets paid and every penny we raise goes into SDA) which enables us to provide heavily subsidised tuition, and in extreme cases free tuition for all our students.
This applies to ALL our students whether they have special needs or not.
Do you want to be part of a large group and have to wait for other members of the class to catch up, or are things moving too fast for you? We tailor all our courses to match your ability and speed of learning. Never again feel under pressure in the classroom!
Our course start and finish dates are flexible, we work with each student to ensure you get the schedule that suits you. You can start an individual course and do it one on one or you can do your course or courses with family and friends. Discount may apply for group courses. We are known for our personal training - at Scuba Diving for All you are not lost in group training but receive one to one personal training - a service that commercial dive schools charge a premium for - at Scuba Diving for All you receive this personal service at no additional charge.
During your confined water training we will provide you with all the equipment you need to learn to dive, or continue your education. We have a variety of kit which will enable you to ‘try before you buy’. Although we don’t sell scuba equipment we will give you the best advice possible based on your requirements and budget.
Leaning and interacting with others has a positive effect on the health of those taking part with an increase in their confidence and communication skills. This is true for all ages and for those with and without disabilities.
