Swimming sessions for abused women launched by Sport Aberdeen to help build confidence

0 0
Women who have been abused will be invited to take part in a "confidence-building” swimming programme designed by Sport Aberdeen.

The organisation has secured £2,000 of Women’s Fund for Scotland money to launch a pilot with support from Violence Against Women Partnership Aberdeen. 

Aberdeen City Council, NHS Scotland, Police Scotland and Rape and Abuse Support are a few of the bodies making up the partnership. 

The programme will consist of a six-week course, with two sessions per week. The one-hour weekly sessions – which focus on building confidence and enhancing swimming skills – will be taught by a qualified swimming teacher and will be based on the individual needs and requirements of the swimmers. 

"Sport Aberdeen is committed to creating opportunities, inspiring people and changing lives through sport and physical activity,” said Sport Aberdeen aquatics manager Dianne Breen.
