Swim Safe logoFREE 'Swim Safe' sessions for 7-14-yr-oldsOpen water locations in England, Wales, Scotland & NI

20,000 places avail

Sign up online at Swim Safe to book your child onto one of the free annual outdoor swimming and water safety courses for 7-14-year olds at 22 open water locations UK-wide from May to September. 

Each session will run for about one hour and include water safety messages with lifeguards and then 30 minutes of in-water tuition from a qualified swimming teacher. Children, who must be able to swim 25 metres, will be taught about the dangers of swimming in the sea or lakes and how they can survive should they find themselves in difficulty or spot someone else in danger.

There are 20,000 spaces available in total (booking opened on Mon 1 May), although last year they filled up fast so go quick if you’re interested. For a full list of locations and dates of courses, see the Swim Safe website. As a reward for taking part, children will receive a Swim Safe swimming cap and a T-shirt.

Do I need to bring anything?

Children will need to bring swimwear (worn under their clothes if possible as changing areas may be limited) and a towel as well as sun cream depending on the weather, but rash vests, swimming caps and wetsuits will be provided.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
