This week is SwimSafer Week and during this week there is a new campaign to get more children learning how to swim.

The new campaign is called ‘Swim it Forward’. It works by richer families helping to pay for those who can’t afford swimming lessons.

Water Safety said the ‘Swim it Forward’ campaign was hoping to bridge a gap with people donating the average cost of one lesson, which was about $20.

A similar campaign was “hugely successful” in Australia.
