Swim Safe offers FREE outdoor swimming and water safety sessions for children aged 7-14. Public and school sessions are in 20 coastal and inland locations across the UK. Book a session near you and help children stay safe when swimming outdoors.
Children love swimming outdoors, but swimming in the sea, rivers and lakes is different to swimming in a pool where most swimming lessons take place.
That's why Swim England, the national governing body for swimming in England, and the RNLI, the charity that saves lives at sea, launched Swim Safe.
Swim Safe offers free outdoor swimming and water safety sessions for children aged between 7 and 14. Children learn how to keep safe when swimming outdoors and know what to do if they get into trouble.
Swim Safe runs every summer at beach, lake and other inland locations across the UK. And the best thing about Swim Safe is that it is free to attend.
Last year, over 7,000 children took part in Swim Safe sessions. It was so successful that this summer the programme has been extended to 20 locations.
Children get to enjoy a fun, structured swimming session at a choice of open water locations – and learn all about how to stay safe.
