Most Aussie children learn to swim in swimming lessons, with many learning this vital skill before they even hit primary school.
But not everyone gets the chance to learn to swim.
People with disabilities often require specially qualified swimming instructors or accessible facilities to enjoy the benefits of swimming.
YMCA NSW provides this support to over 1,700 people with disabilities each year through our SwimAbility program.
Our annual Swimathon raises vital funds needed to support SwimAbility.
You can help improve access to the skills needed to enjoy the water safely and ensure children, young people and adults become healthier, happier and more connected – whatever their ability.
Please help YMCA NSW to provide SwimAbility for people with disabilities.
