    I have an upper limb disability as well as spinal issues. When I have tried swimming for health and fitness in the past I have aggregated thewe injuries. Is there a coach who can help me with my swimming style?

    This is a great programme - I started in July doing 20 lengths and have just swum a mile (64 lengths), which is the first time ever!  Bear in mind that I was one of the worst swimmers in the class at Primary school and only left Secondary with a 100m certificate.

    It has made a huge difference to my confidence - I can now swim with my face in the water and just feel so much more at ease in the pool. I swim five times a week - previously once would have been my limit!s
