Inclusive swimming framework

National Inclusive Swimming Framework

The Inclusive Swimming Framework (ISF) is a blueprint to guide Swimming Australia, its stakeholders and aquatic partners toward achieving full inclusion of people from a diverse array of circumstances and backgrounds in swimming and aquatic activities. The ISF incorporates the direction, thoughts and opinions of the swimming and aquatic community and aims to establish a consistent approach to planning and policy development for the swimming and aquatics sector.

From the outset of the ISF’s development it has been evident that ‘knowing where to start’ in addressing issues of inclusion is a major sticking point. This is common across all levels and all circumstances. With this in mind the ISF has been developed to be a practical framework that assists organisations and individuals delivering swimming and aquatic opportunities to understand where to start with inclusion and subsequently enact real change.
