It’s never to late to Learn to Swim!

Adult swimming lessons are a great way to gain confidence in the water and live a healthier lifestyle. Not only is being able to swim a necessary life skill, which can come in handy both at home and abroad, but there are many health benefits that come with swimming. Whether you’ve never learned to swim, never been a great swimmer or simply haven’t swam in a while, we’re here to help.

“I started the Learn to Swim Scheme when I was 47, I’d never learnt to swim before but wanted to learn for my son.

Not only have I made friends, but I’ve learned a valuable skill and can now take my son swimming!”

Stephanie – Adult Learn to Swim Scheme Participant
