About the project

Our research shows 55% of Australian children are not currently in swimming lessons, with a major reason being affordability. We believe learning to swim is a lifesaving skill every child should receive. Swim It Forward is an initiative aimed to help more children receive this vital education.

Swim it Forward's mission is to save lives by making learn to swim accessible to as many children as possible across Australia.

For every child we help place into a learn to swim program, the more we lower the risk of drowning deaths.

With your help we will radically improve the number of children learning to swim and make a difference in preventing drownings.

$20 will provide one lesson to a child

$200 will provide a child with lessons for one term

$800 will provide a child with lessons for a whole year
