Royal Life Saving and UNCLE TOBYS Swim My Way program celebrates 20,000 swim lessons
Twenty-thousand free swimming lessons have been delivered to people across Australia who may have missed out on water safety education and learning how to swim, thanks to the Royal Life Saving and UNCLE TOBYS Swim My Way program.
The Swim My Way program aims to make swimming more accessible for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities across Australia, while encouraging them to embrace an active, healthy lifestyle and experience the joys and benefits of learning to swim. The program supports at-risk groups, including Indigenous families, culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities, and children from remote or low-income households.
Since its launch in February 2018, Swim My Way has run 24 programs for children and adults from a number of communities, including people with disabilities, people with autism and new migrants.
Royal Life Saving CEO Justin Scarr, said “Australians love the water, and they love swimming. The UNCLE TOBYS Swim My Way program helps communities who may not have been exposed to swimming and water safety education to find their love of swimming so that they can be safe and confident in the water.”
Royal Life Saving’s partnership with UNCLE TOBYS gets everyone swimming, helping them to enjoy Australia’s beautiful waterways, beaches and swimming pools safely.
