iCAN Swim

iCAN Swim is brought to you by Active Suffolk working alongside partner organisations and leisure providers across the county.

iCAN Swim encourages you to join in a range of sessions, designed to help you learn to swim with confidence at disability friendly centres.

The iCAN Swim campaign aims to get more people swimming by promoting opportunities for people with disabilities and impairments to swim regardless of age and ability.Some long-term health conditions and impairments start later in life and may impact on your confidence long after you have learnt to swim. iCAN Swim is designed to get you swimming again with confidence.

Swimming without boundaries.
