FREE Swimming Programme for people living with HIV

The HIV Swimming Programme and the Cara Trust have secured National Lottery funding to provide a Free Swimming Programme for adults living with HIV 
in the London area.

The Awards For All grant will guarantee FREE access to the programme for ten months and provide much needed employment and training opportunities for people living with HIV (PLWHIV). 

The award is a direct legacy of a ‘pilot’ that was run to coincide with the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics: funded by the Mayor of London’s FreeSport imitative and Wandsworth Oasis.
