Most clubs in Sussex will make provision for disabled swimmers if at all possible. There are also a number of swimming clubs and groups dedicated to supporting young people and adults with disabilities. Contact details of swimming clubs for people with disabilities.
The English Federation of Disability Sport has unveiled the Inclusion Club Hub. The new online toolkit will support sports clubs to improve provision and opportunities, so that more disabled people can be active at a local level.
MId-Sussex Marlins is the Disability Hub Club for Sussex, and can provide a skills assessment plus support and guidance to help swimmers become more involved in the competitive disability swimming pathway. Following an assessment, swimmers will be directed to appropriate provision which can include; lessons, regular training and competitive opportunities.
