Financial Support for Clubs Taking in Ukrainian Swimmers and Teachers

Club Funding and Qualification initiative

Swim England is offering a one-off bursary of £150 to clubs who have welcomed one or more Ukrainian swimmers. This will be a contribution to the overall financial support that clubs are providing, and can be used by the committee to directly support the swimmers’ resettlement journey. Please note, this funding is going fast so if you are planning to apply, please do so quicky!

Swim England is also working on a new initiative with the Institute of Swimming to offer Ukrainian swimming teachers, who have been forced to flee the invasion, the chance to gain a world-renowned qualification free of charge. The two-part initiative is part of the Homes for Ukraine and Ukraine Family Sponsorship scheme and will allow Ukrainian swimming teachers to gain their Swim England Qualifications (SEQ) Level 1 and Level 2 Teaching Swimming qualifications at no cost to themselves.
