My project is simple, get as many people with varying disabilities into swimming as possible. I will be actively seeking out those who want to participate in swimming as well as those who wish to spectate. There is an urgent demand from The Greenwich Borough residents for a programme such as the one I am proposing. I will be formulating strong working relationships with local councils, schools, swimming clubs and other organisations who work closely with individuals with physical and mental disabilities to provide a swimming tuition programme that is bespoke to the individual swimmers in my swim school. I will be raising additional funds for my project through cakes sales and raffles to support the purchase of equipment and swim teaching tops etc. My project will also encompass recruiting experienced and seasoned swimming teachers and coaches to deliver these lessons.

What we'll deliver:

  • inclusive swimming lessons
  • job opportunities
  • advice and guidance

Why it's a great idea:

This project is a great idea for numerous reasons: 1. It provides an opportunity to make new friends and learn a life skill. 2. Learning to swim enhances and has shown to increase feelings of self-worth and morale 3. According to W.H.O (world health organisation “Drowning is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional injury death worldwide, accounting for 7% of all injury-related deaths” 4. The demand for learn to swim programmes for people in the disabled community is not being met currently thus forcing adults and children alike, to wait indefinitely to begin learning to swim. My project both draws attention to this circumstance and sets about resolving it. 5. Many children and adults with a physical or mental disability suffer from excess weight gain due to inactivity. Swimming has been shown to reduce anxiety, burn 200 to 300 calories in roughly half an hour, increase energy levels, build muscular strength. And the list goes on. Help me help others ....

Steps to get it done:
