Advantages of a Swim-Ability

 

Swimming is a great activity for improving health and fitness and is often prescribed for children with a physical disability as a form of therapy because the water is weight bearing.

It's also a great leveller and brings a feeling of equality.  Once the swimmer is in the water often any physical disabilities are irrelevant.

 

Joining in with lessons or getting involved in a club is a good way for making those all important social connections for your child.

Meanwhile the sensory element of the water can stimulate interaction in children with emotional, behavioural and communication disorders and neurological conditions such as autism..

Blessing in Disguise received a "Magic Little Grant" through the partnership between Localgiving and Postcode Community Trust in October 2020 to enable us to provide funding for these sessions.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, everything was put on hold until the restrictions were lifted late 2021. 

We are now able to offer these support sessions for up to 8 children with life-limiting illnesses and disabilities.

It will be a block booking for 9 weeks providing 1:1 swimming lessons for children with life-limiting illnesses and disabilities.

Blessing in Disguise would like to thank Localgiving and Postcode Community Trust, a grant-giving charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
