Level Water are a national charity who provide bespoke, 1-1 swimming lessons to children with disabilities. They currently work in 90 pools and provide 20,000 lessons to 500 children, but this is all at risk. Their income has been hit hard with the cancellation of the 2020 events and if pools and events don’t reopen soon, the charity may not continue for much longer and hundreds of children will miss out on this life changing skill.
