Swim It Forward

Our research shows that more than half (55%) of all Australian children are not learning to swim due to the cost to enrol in lessons and in recent times over 8 million swimming lessons were missed due COVID-19. We believe learning to swim is a lifesaving skill every child should receive regardless of income or ability and our aim is to help more children receive this vital education and lifelong skill.

Swim It Forward is an initiative to take the financial barrier out of the equation and get more disadvantaged Australian families enrolled in swimming lessons at their local swim school.
For every child we help place into a learn to swim program, the more we lower the risk of drowning deaths and grow confidence in our kids to love swimming and the water.
With your help we will radically improve the number of children learning to swim and make a big difference in preventing drownings. Read more or donate now
