Epic Swimming - UK

Improving water safety in primary schools

EPIC Partners offer a number of sports for children, parents and the wider community. Their aim is to develop stronger, healthier and more vibrant communities through sport. They aim to raise sporting participation and improve wider outcomes for children, young people and their families.

Years: 2016, 2017

EPIC Partners are piloting a new, innovative project called ECAS-DP. The purpose of the project is to enable children of primary school age to be safe in and around water, increasing their awareness of water safety, swim survival and rescue skills, with the overall aim of reducing drowning incidences amongst children in/from the St Ann’s and Sneinton area.

 

EPIC Partners have worked in this community for many years and are aware that young children are often cared for by older siblings, many of these aged around 11 years. EPIC Partners believe it is vital that these children are equipped with the appropriate skills to ensure that younger siblings are kept safe from harm when around water.

 

The project aims to raise children’s confidence in and around water based activities and embed swimming and water safety into children’s lives so that it becomes a life-long passion. It also aims to create career paths and livelihood opportunities for children and young people in the swimming and lifeguarding sector.
