By supporting UKSA’s Sea.Change Fund you are giving young people for all backgrounds the opportunity to make a positive change in their future. Programmes you will be supporting:
Leave No Child Behind
We know that many children and young people are missing out on life changing opportunities because schools, local authorities and parents simply cannot afford to pay for them. Our aim is to remove both financial and social barriers to enable young people from any background to achieve their best and gain life changing experiences, qualifications and employment.
Test the Water
The Test the Water programme offers all year 6 primary school children on the Isle of Wight, the chance to participate in a half-day FREE watersports session. The aim of this programme is to support all of our young people to gain water-confidence alongside introducing them to sailing.
Launching maritime Careers
UKSA is one of the world’s leading maritime training providers and is passionate about helping young people advance in the world of sailing. We provide considerable funding for our career training programmes and want to widen the opportunities to young people that deserve and need it most.
The difference that the trip has made to children’s confidence and the way they engage has been amazing – the experience was a great leveller.
DSLV – Residential Trip
Thousands of students attend UKSA each year with the aim of gaining the skills and qualifications needed to build a successful career in the maritime industry. Here we share some of their inspirational stories.
