Sunshine Swim Bursary

Financial pressures often make it challenging for parents/ guardians to provide their children with opportunities like swimming lessons. This financial strain can prevent children from learning crucial, life saving water safety skills, and the many other benefits of physical activity and social interaction that comes with swimming.


To remove this financial barrier, The Darcey Sunshine Foundation have partnered with SwimEasy Ltd, to offer learn to swim bursaries for their summer RapidTrack programme in Edinburgh.
