Get Involved With Dive Ability

Dive Ability is run entirely by volunteers, without whom it would be impossible to do what we do. We are thankful to every volunteer and are constantly on the look out for new volunteers.

Become a member - every organisation needs members and Dive Ability is no exception. You don't need to become a member to get involved, but the membership fee is nominal and helps with our operating expenses. You can download a membership form here.

In the water - we welcome instructors and certified teaching assistants from any training agency, regardless of whether or not you have any previous experience of working with disabilities. Additionally, qualified divers of any level who would like to learn how to buddy with a disabled diver are very welcome.

On the poolside - loading and unloading the dive equipment, setting up the dive kit and getting divers in and out of the water requires a team of volunteers. Although specialist lifting equipment is available, safety is our number one priority.

Fundraising - if you have an idea for fundraising, or would like to help in this way, e.g. selling raffle tickets we would love to hear from you.

Spread the word - Dive Ability is all about introducing as many new people as possible to the thrill and freedom of scuba diving and you can help. Just tell everyone you know about what we do. If you are able to spare some time, we always need volunteers to assist at a few exhibitions and events we attend throughout the year.

On a Dive Ability holiday - Dive Ability holidays are a fun way of enjoying diving stunning dive sites with a group of like-minded individuals and there are few things more rewarding than helping someone else to enjoy that fantastic dive.

If you would like to help out, please contact us.
