Serious About Helping Out? Find Out Just How Rewarding Being Involved In RDAWA Really Is...

Riding for the Disabled Association of WA would not exist without its volunteers. We value the generous voluntary commitment of over 200 people who help run our centres and provide our programs. There are many ways you can help make a difference to the lives of others within your community - from coaching riders, to side walking, to fundraising to making tea! Volunteer your legs and enthusiasm to help make the learning experience fun and enjoyable. Volunteers are vital for any non-for profit organisation RDAWA volunteers are no exception; we rely totally on our many dedicated volunteers to deliver our services each week over 2000 volunteers at RDA centres across the nation donate their time to assist children and adults with disabilities to enjoy the therapeutic related benefits of horse related activates. Below are some of the ways in which you can get involved. .

Our centres need voluntary helpers to assist them in providing weekly recreational & therapeutic sessions to our participants with disabilities, special needs and mental health problems. You can be part of a team that helps to develop their abilities and enrich their lives. You do not need to know anything about horses as training is provided and there will always be someone willing to show you what to do.
If you are over the age of 14 and would like to become a volunteer then please contact you local RDAWA Centre, to discuss your availability. As part of our commitment to a safe environment for children and people at risk, volunteers over the age of 18 are required to complete a successful Working with Children Check and National Volunteer Police Check. The centre will forward you the necessary paperwork for completion. An induction and basic training program will be organised for you upon commencement with your RDAWA centre.
Why not consider becoming an RDA coach and volunteer your experience and time to help make a difference in the lives of others. You can commence your training at the age of 16 whilst working towards our level O certification. Our RDA Coaching program is nationally accredited by the Australian Sports Commission.
RDA Hippotherapy is a specialised program that works with trained physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists who have become qualified Hippotherapists to help provide unique therapies to those in need. If you are interested in using your skills and knowledge to help develop the abilities of others then consider becoming part of the RDAWA team.
