Swim England Health and Wellbeing Fact Sheets:
Following publication of the Health and Wellbeing Benefits of Swimming report, Swim England’s Health Commission group have agreed to work collaboratively to develop a range of fact sheets on swimming with particular health conditions, written for competitive swimmers, the general public and to also assist those who support or advise swimmers. The number of fact sheets is expected to grow in the coming months, with all content provided by technical experts who specialise in swimming and health conditions, based on the best available evidence.

Charities offering help and advice
Sometimes we all need someone to talk to. Hopefully our swimmers feel confident enough to be able to talk to parents, siblings, coaches, welfare officers or friends. However, these are not trained professionals and sometimes a little more help is needed.
Below is a list of numbers/websites which can offer some help/advice. Please do not ever be afraid or embarrassed to talk to someone.
