Swimunity started in 2019 as a collective of two swimming teachers from a competitive swimming background who wanted to provide FREE, HIGH QUALITY swimming workshops for the community.
Swimunity’s aims were formed in the wake of the Grenfell fire tragedy to teach and enhance resilience, empowerment and strength to young people. It is a chance for someone to learn how to keep themselves safe, as well as how to relax and keep calm, face fears and increase their confidence and health.
We believe there is a need for a more inclusive approach to aquatics and we aim to remove any barriers present whether they are cultural or economic through working with the local community to make them feel welcome and at ease with the water . We recognise the need for fun in young people and children’s lives as well as adults and believe that there are many benefits to taking part in an activity purely for pleasure, joy and connection.
