Embracing Inclusion and Diversity

At Galway City Sailing Club, we are dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment where individuals of all abilities can experience the joy of sailing. We proudly announce our commitment to the Sport Inclusion Disability Charter, which guides us in prioritising the inclusion of people with disabilities across five key areas:

Openness: We embrace openness and understanding towards all individuals with disabilities. Our club promotes a culture of acceptance and respect, ensuring that everyone feels valued and welcomed.

People: We prioritise the training and development of our staff and volunteers to facilitate the inclusion of people with disabilities. Through specialized training programs, we equip our team members with the knowledge and skills necessary to support individuals of diverse abilities effectively.

Activities: Galway City Sailing Club is dedicated to developing and delivering inclusive activities. We strive to create a diverse range of sailing programs that cater to the unique needs and preferences of all participants, ensuring that everyone can actively engage and enjoy the sport.

Facilities: We continually review and enhance our facilities, venues, and equipment to make our organization more accessible. By identifying and addressing barriers to accessibility, we strive to create an environment where individuals with disabilities can navigate our facilities with ease and participate fully in sailing activities.

Promotion: We actively promote the inclusive nature of our activities through a variety of formats. From social media campaigns to community outreach initiatives, we raise awareness of the opportunities available for people with disabilities to engage in sailing and encourage participation from individuals of all abilities.

At Galway City Sailing Club, inclusion is at the heart of everything we do. We invite individuals of all abilities to join us on the water and experience the exhilaration of sailing in a welcoming and supportive environment. Together, let’s sail towards a future where everyone can thrive, regardless of ability.
