A FAIR START IN SPORT

Level Water provides specialist one-to-one swimming lessons for children with physical and sensory disabilities.

Once each child has learnt to swim 15m frontcrawl and backstroke, they can be safe and independent in the water, and can join group swimming lessons or join their local competitive club.

But it's not just about swimming... Through developing independence in the water, and being able to join mainstream classes, each child develops confidence, self-esteem and resilience.

If we can help to give children physical, social and emotional confidence through sport, we can change their trajectory in life.

“Myself and Ridwan did not ever think that he would be able to swim and after a while when I saw him swimming, I could not believe what I was seeing. I was crying with happiness!

Now his physical ability has improved a lot and he has become a lot more stronger and has gained a lot more confidence. Ridwan has become so happy, like never before and if he was sick for just one swimming lesson he would become so upset. I am so very pleased with Level Water and I hope you keep up the excellent work!”

Faduma, Ridwan’s Mum

Do you believe in the power of sport? 

Sport can have a huge impact on a child's physical and mental confidence but only one in eight disabled children is a member of a sports club. 

With your help, we can teach more children to swim. Fundraising is easier than you think and we will help you every step of the way.

Level Water is offering specialist swimming lessons to children with disabilities. These lessons are for primary aged children with a physical disability or sensory impairment. We do not currently work with children who have learning, social or behavioural difficulties.

We provide small group and one-to-one lessons until your child is ready to join a mainstream class or competitive club.

The teachers we work with receive our own specialist disability training that is accredited by CIMSPA. They will then deliver your lessons as normal, but we help cover the cost until your child is ready to move to group lessons.

Rebecca Adlington  Double Olympic Gold Medallist  "Every child should leave primary school being able to swim 25 metres. Every child means every child, disabled or not. Without Level Water's work, a lot of disabled children would be left behind, and never have the chance to experience a lifetime of sport."
