Beneficery 2012. “What the Sailaday Experience achieved for me in 4 days, 4 years of psychologists and psychiatrists failed to achieve" AC 2012

Agency Care Team. “The participants of sailaday ok are most likely to complete treatment.”

Quote from a Plymouth Residential. “Childhood abuse and neglect can induce a wide range of debilitating symptoms that can result in multiple and complex problems, impacting on all areas of life. The Sailaday OK session/s play an important role in the healing process and integrates well into our treatment plan.  It gives a very concrete experience to draw on and from which to recognise resilience, existing strengths and the ability to make positive changes in their lives.”

Volunteer.

 “When I contacted Sailaday I was up front about my motivations for volunteering and explained what I wanted to achieve. After so many rejections I wasn’t expecting to be welcomed aboard so warmly. And not just in the metaphorical sense, I’d also have a chance to get out on the boat and go sailing which was a bonus.
