England Swims research and findings12 October 2022
England Swims has a simple goal – to make water-based activity as accessible and inclusive for everyone.
Working alongside key partners, Swim England has gathered the views and experiences from ethnically diverse communities in a bid to break down long-standing barriers which prevent participation.
The comprehensive data was collected during a month-long campaign throughout May 2022 and is being used to help shape Swim England’s next 10-year strategy.
In addition, it will enable the recognised national governing body and its partners across the sector to identify key projects and initiatives which will help diversify our sports.
Almost 4,500 people completed the England Swims survey and the industry-leading insight will be vital to encourage ethnically diverse communities into the water.
