Uncle Tobys Swims 4 all

Swimming is as Australian as cicadas on a summer night. And for 30 years, we’ve been helping Aussies of all abilities enjoy the water – whether it’s supporting their fun in the backyard pool or their dreams of competing at the Olympics.

We may have the reputation as a nation of swimmers, but recent statistics show that the number of Australians swimming regularly fell 30% in the past decade, and nearly 5% of adults can’t swim at all.

That’s why SWIMS 4 ALL is such an exciting initiative. It’s a chance to give back and help even more people get active through swimming – a fundamental part of our enviable lifestyle.

Activating Australians through Swimming

We’ve partnered with Royal Life Saving Society – Australia, a not-for-profit organisation that has supported communities for over 123 years by equipping them with the skills to enjoy our country’s beautiful waterways.

For the next three years, Uncle Tobys SWIMS 4 ALL will fund swimming, water safety, and aquatic programs to make swimming more accessible for more people – regardless of age or experience. The teams at Uncle Tobys and Royal Life Saving Society – Australia are looking forward to helping all Australians get active in the water and lead healthier lifestyles.

Royal life saving programs in action

Being able to swim is a simple but liberating pleasure for anyone living in Australia. The work Royal Life Saving has done in Newcastle illustrates that no matter your age, background or ability, swimming is for everyone…some just need the opportunity to learn how.

Our partnership with Royal Life Saving and the launch of the Uncle Tobys SWIMS 4 ALL campaign is to enable more local success stories like the Newcastle Chinese community, who are now able to swim with confidence and enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle. Check out the video to see their story.
