take part in water activities and will carry out a brief risk

For some the Club provides independence where they can swim on their own. For
others, it is somewhere they can exercise with their family or friends, while
many others are able to take advantage of the help and support offered by our
team of volunteers.
The Club is affiliated to the Halliwick Association of
Swimming Therapy and to NASCH, a National Association of Swimming Clubs for the
Disabled. We are also members of 3VA.
