Swim It Forward

Our research indicates that 41% of Australian children are currently not enrolled in swimming lessons. Concerns about their children being too young and the perceived cost of swimming lessons are among the top reasons cited by parents. Learning to swim is a fundamental preventive measure that parents can take to ensure their children's safety in and around water.


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.
