iCAN Swim is a branded swimming programme delivered by partner organisations and leisure providers across the county.
iCAN Swim encourages disabled people to join in a range of sessions, designed to help build swimming confidence at disability friendly centres.
iCAN Swim sessions aim to get more people swimming by promoting opportunities for people with disabilities and impairments to swim regardless of age or ability.
Some long-term health conditions and impairments start later in life and may impact on swimming confidence long after someone has learnt to swim. iCAN Swim is designed to get anyone swimming again with confidence.
