We have a dedicated team of over 25 volunteers who deliver our specialist swim sessions, activities and events.

There is always more to be done!


In recognition of the valuable work of volunteers here at SDSG, we have signed up to the Coast and Vale Community Action (CaVCA) Volunteer Charter for best practice in volunteer management and also made a pledged to the Disability Action Alliance core principles in recruiting and working with volunteers who also have a disability.

SDSG supports Continuing Professional Development. 

Safer recruitment conditions apply. 

SDSG also works in partnership with Coventry University Scarborough Campus and with various voluntary groups to offer volunteer placements, including those that offer The Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

As a volunteer led charity, SDSG is always on the lookout for new volunteers: may this be to support our Special Olympic Athletes to attend local competitions and events at weekends; assist during our fortnightly swim sessions (in water, poolside or on reception) or to simply carry out administrative tasks between sessions. 

If you have a few hours to spare and are up for a new challenge, please get in touch!
