No one should miss out on learning how to swim.

Swimming and water activities are very much a part of the Aussie culture. However, many children across Australia don’t get the opportunity to learn how to swim.

In many communities, swimming and water safety education is simply not accessible. Children and adults from lower social or economic families, Indigenous or culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, or from regional and remote communities, are more likely to miss out making them extremely vulnerable to drowning. 

The Swim and Survive Fund provides swimming and water safety lessons for children who have had limited or no exposure to water safety education.

Your donation can help teach children across Australia these vital life skills.

“We come from a background where I don’t know how to swim and have always been scared of the water, so if my children want to go swimming I get scared as I can’t save them if they get into trouble. It means a lot that my children are learning to swim in the water.’’ - Father of WA Swim and Survive Participant
