Since 2015 we have been running regular swimming sessions at Bramley Baths, a beautiful, Victorian & community led swimming pool in West Leeds.
The sessions are designed to be a mixture of fun family swim for everyone with short, structured, small group teaching sessions for children & young people with Down syndrome.
The sessions proved so popular that in 2016 we worked with Tracy, chief executive , and Sharon, swimming teacher, at Bramley Baths to put together a funding application for Children in Need which resulted in a year of funded swimming sessions.
This year, as the funding period came to an end, we reflected on how we could improve the sessions & developed a plan to have bookable 1:1 sessions for up to 16 children & young people per session alongside the ever popular family swim session.
We again worked with Bramley Baths and they submitted an application to Children in Needs for a further 3 years of funding.
We are delighted that this funding application was successful and that our fortnightly swimming sessions are now secure until July 2020.
