Fundraise for Level Water

Level Water builds the confidence, resilience and self-esteem of disabled children who often feel excluded or who have low levels of well-being, by providing specialist one-to-one swimming lessons, enabling them to join group or mainstream activities and engage in a lifetime of activity.

We couldn't keep offering swimming lessons to disabled children without the incredible support from the people who fundraise for us.

If you are interested in helping, there are many ways you can support us:

  • You could run your own event.

  • If you or your company would like to support us please contact Colette below.

  • Take part in an organised event, you can find a good selection here.



Level Water, the charity providing a fair start in sport for children with disabilities through one-to-one swimming lessons, is named as Marathon Swims London principal charity partner.

Marathon Swims is the “London Marathon” of swimming. The event returns (9 and 10 November 2019) to the iconic London Aquatics Centre, home of swimming during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The 10k swimming marathon has been an Olympic medal event since Beijing 2008. The team behind Marathon Swims reinvented the challenge to create a pool-based Marathon 10k, Half Marathon 5k and 1k Challenge event.

“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Marathon Swims,” stated Level Water Founder and Chief Executive Ian Thwaites. “Our work is critical to enable children with a disability to attain the water skills to swim 10m unaided, thus enabling them to join mainstream classes and to progress their swimming with the same opportunities as their able-bodied peers. Working in partnership with standout events such as Marathon Swims London and the Outdoor Swimming Society’s Dart 10k will enable us to support hundreds of disabled children each year.”

“We are excited to be working in partnership with Level Water. The charity is a highly relevant partner and provides an essential support to those who need it, in one of the most inclusive sports there is. We know our Marathon Swims participants will respond to the challenge and raise money for Level Water’s amazing work”, stated Diccon Loy, Marathon Swims Founder.

Entries to Marathon Swims 2019 London are now open and participants can choose to fundraise for Level Water through a special half price entry offer.

The Marathon Swims event was shortlisted for Event of the Year at the BT Sport Industry Awards in 2018 and UK Active Awards 2018. The event has sold out each year since its launch in 2017.

We are pleased to announce we are the chosen charity partner for the Outdoor Swimming Society!
