Volunteers for Swimming Support

Can you spare a couple of hours per week during term time to support our students in the water?  If you live locally and could spare some time we would love to hear from you. 

We are seeking local community volunteers who would be willing to devote a maximum of 2 hours to support our students in their swimming lessons.  It is a very rewarding experience and you will find our students love swimming, are highly motivated and appreciative of the support.

If you live locally and enjoy swimming and working with children and young people please get in contact.  You must be able to swim a minimum of 25 metres and be aged over 18.  Experience of working with students with physical disabilities or complex medical needs is desirable, but not essential as we will provide full training.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting every student's welfare and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  You will be required to complete an application form, provide two references and for successful applicants we will run an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
