This week marks International Learn to Swim Week and we are supporting the work of our partners the STA.

With babies, children and adults having very limited, or no access to swimming pools over the last 12 months, this year’s International Learn to Swim Week takes on a whole new level of importance and the STA want everyone to get involved – and to get back to “Loving Water Safely”.

Once again, we globally unite as one voice. Let’s celebrate the return of swimming lessons and use this as an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of learning to swim and water safety education – not only as a key life skill this time but how swimming will also play a really important role in helping our youngsters recover from the pandemic, physically and mentally.

For people with cerebral palsy, find out more about taking part in swimming in your area by contacting jennifer.basford@cpsport.org
