Something a bit different?!

Overview

Our primary focus is providing a supportive environment, where every adult is welcome, regardless of your disability. We do not provide swim coaching or competitive training. Instead we focus on the mental, physical and social benefits of swimming and community.

With dedicated pool space and the support of our fantastic volunteers WeSwim provides welcoming and safe swimming sessions for swimmers with disabilities. Whether you are new to swimming, you need to build your confidence or you would like to work on particular exercises in the water we are here to support you.
