Making scuba diving affordable to all and accessible to all, children and adults with adhd or similar conditions in a pay as you go at £15ph

by Laura Hamilton (nee Campbell) in Paisley, Scotland, United Kingdom

  • Hi, my name is Laura. I own & operate Just Dive and my goal is to make a difference in our local communities. I want to make scuba diving accessible, providing an experience and an opportunity which many consider out of reach.

  • We are fully qualified PADI scuba diving instructors with over 15 years of diving experience! 
  • We want to teach you to scuba dive! Our open, inclusive classes work with many different groups of people & individuals. We want to offer this to as many local people as we can in all communities. We provide all equipment all you need is swimming kit and a towel!

  • I want to empower children from age 8 to learn these fabulous cross over skills and abilities. I want to even out the playing field and prepare them to go down the paths they choose. To afford them the same opportunity to travel and learn that I have had.
  • We work with children from age 8 offering the full PADI range of courses for kids, including Bubblemaker and Seal Team - offering youngsters an excellent opportunity.  

  • We have experience in working with children or adults who have been diagnosed with ADHD or Autistim. Our training, the methodology and the support for these children allows us to provide a unique, often life changing experience. We offer this to individuals and groups who perhaps struggle to find an activity they can enjoy. The quiet and non verbal training - all have positive ramifications for these students and their families.. 

  • Our courses teach a wide variety of water based skills. We work in teams and this can have a positive effect on your mental & physical health and has many other benefits. We provide this for individuals for groups and for families.
  • We think it's unfair Scottish people don't have access to courses which are affordable here at home and that's why our courses and experiences start from only £15 per hour... we are striving to make it affordable and operate a pay as you go scheme! We are the only PADI operation in the sector who offer this and we are passionate about it.

  • We are offering local people internships to gain qualifications to become a Divemaster. This globally recognised qualification which afford them access to employment opportunites both at home and overseas.
  • We work with people with a variety of medical diagnosis and conditions. These individuals often testify to the positive effect diving has had on their lives post diagnosis. Medical advice allowing.
