MEMBERSHIP

As a membership charity you will need to join before attending one of our swim sessions and activities. 

Membership

Membership is open to anyone of any age with a disability and anyone aged 50 and over. 

 

SDSG believes in the holistic approach to support, therefore, each paid up member can bring their family, carer(s) or a friend with them (subject to entry fees), as long as they complete a membership form. 

Once you have submitted your membership form(s), and paid your membership*, you will be provided with a booking password to enable online bookings. 

Note: Membership is not confirmed until your first swim session, subject to any additional questions. 

Cost:

To help pay the charity insurance (inc member insurance) and general running costs, each household (or individually if in supported living/care home) pays an annual membership fee, which is due upon joining and in January each year.  See downloads for example costs depending on your situation. 

Annual Membership: £8.00* (subsidised)

 

There are also session/activity entry fees to help pay for pool hire, lifeguards, volunteers and equipment costs. 

Swim Entry Adult: from £4.50 (subsidised)

Swim Entry Child: from £3.00 (subsidised)

Once you have returned your membership form(s) you will be emailed a payment link to enable you to pay your annual membership by debit card online.  

*If you are a tax payer we can claim back the tax paid on your membership fee, an additional 25% through Gift Aid. Please complete a declaration or a Gift Aid Envelop during one of our sessions. 

Forms:

To help keep you safe, every person in the pool must have completed a membership form. 

Each person with a disability or health condition must complete a Health Membership Form and answer questions about their health. All other swimmers must be listed and have signed a Companion Multi-Carer/Family Form confirming their details. 

This is an insurance requirement and they must be reviewed regularly to ensure they remain up to date.

NEW MEMBER PROCESS

In-light of COVID-19 we are unable to complete the forms with you at your first session, therefore, they need to be completed at home and submitted in advance. This is the process:

1 - Download a membership form from our website or request a printed form to be posted to you. Including a companion form if a friend, carer or family member is coming swimming with you, along with a Gift Aid form if you are a tax payer and wish to increase your donations by 25% through Gift Aid. 

 

2 - Return the membership form(s) by email to membership@sdsg.org.uk, please take a picture of the forms using your phone or contact us for a postal address. 

 

3 - You will then be able to pay your annual membership online. You will be sent the link by email. 

4 - Once you have paid your annual membership online the system will email you your booking password to be able to book online.

5 - Depending on your disability or health condition we may need to ask you some more questions at your first swim session before becoming a member.
