Founder of All4oneswimming.

Welcome message and a bit about me…

Thanks for visiting my website, All4oneswimming.co.uk.

I created All4oneswimming primarily for differently abled people; to offer an enjoyable and physical activity, which can be adapted for all abilities. This being said  everyone is welcome from all backgrounds and experiences. Swimming has a variety of health and wellbeing benefits, such as increased energy levels, builds strength and burns calories, particularly for those who suffer from physical and mental health issues. I wanted to make swimming accessible for all; hence I founded All4oneswimming. I have worked in both public and private leisure centres across South East London; predominantly working Lewisham and Southwark boroughs. I have over 9 years of experience in coaching and sport.

I coach budding swimmers of all abilities and ages; whilst specialising in teaching individuals with physical and learning disabilities. I have helped numerous of differently abled people, working with organisations such as the Signal Family Support, Saxon Crown (Tiger Sharks) and in special educational needs schools to offer holistic support. For 6 years, I have taught differently abled people how to swim; along with able people. My innovative approach, ability to build relationships and adapt traditional swimming techniques have gained the trust, respect and referrals from many in the differently abled community, leisure centres and medical professionals.

My mission is to support individuals to reach their swimming goals, whether this be to compete, or swim for leisure and fitness. Above all, I want to make the swimming experience accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

I hope that you find the resources and information on my website helpful, but more importantly I hope it inspires you to give swimming a go! Or perhaps you are already an avid swimmer and want to hone your technique; All4oneswimming has been designed for all levels and abilities. I believe swimming is an essential life-skill that can improve health and wellbeing; thus it should be affordable, safe and accessible for all. I pride myself in being able to have a positive impact on people through coaching, this fuels my ambition to continue to grow All4oneswimming across London.

Thanks once again for visiting. I hope to connect with you soon and before you go, don’t forget to front crawl into our social media via the links below.

Vision

“According to a Contact a Family survey in 2012, 1 in 6 families (17%) with disabled children go without food, 1 in 5 (21%) go without heating, 1 in 4 (26%) go without specialist equipment or adaption, and 86% go without leisure activities” (Papworth Trust Report 2018: 21). My vision and aim is simple; reduce this number. We can all agree this number is a travesty, with predictions that this percentage will rise over the coming years.

In 2018, I aim to set about engaging as many people from the differently abled communities; encouraging them to take up swimming, removing perceived barriers that deter individuals from participating in the activity of swimming. My goal is to reach 30 new people this year and have 9 newly-confident swimmers by May 2019.

Be a part of the vision and get in touch today! If you’re still not sure swimming is for you, then email over your concerns, as I am 99.9% sure we can change this together.
