Swimming in the fast lane

National Deaf Childrens SocietyYoung deaf swimmers in Scotland will continue to enjoy the benefits of the Deaf-Friendly Swimming project for a further two years, thanks to National Lottery funding through the Big Lottery's Young Start scheme.

The project, managed by the National Deaf Children’s Society and underpinned by strong partnerships with organisations including Scottish Swimming and Scottish Disability Sport, aims to support deaf young people and their families, helping them to access aquatics. Deaf young people and their families will be able to take part in swimming lessons, come try days, family events and pool parties, and access a coach bursary scheme. Swimming teachers will be able to attend workshops, complete online courses and make use of resources and a toolkit to help make their lessons inclusive.
