Could you be a Swim Buddy?

< Back to News

Could you provide support and encouragement to someone who wishes to access local swimming facilities but is not confident doing so alone and may need additional support.


What are we looking for?

You would be a good swimmer yourself, patient and caring and able to motivate others. You would have a friendly personality and an ease of making conversation and getting on with people. The role is flexible in terms of timing although would need to be at a mutually convenient time for volunteer, service user

Practical Considerations

This role could take place in Blackburn Sports and Leisure Centre or Darwen Leisure Centre, depending on where the volunteer lives.
An induction would take place and volunteer expenses will be covered. Volunteers would need to age over 18 and would be required to complete a criminal record check (DBS) and provide references.
