The Aviva Community Fund offers the chance for community projects to win funding. Narcolepsy UK are applying for funding for our Safe Swimming project. Successful applications are based on public voting, so your vote can make the difference!

Narcolepsy UK have teamed up with both the Royal Life Saving Society UK and Swimming Teachers’ Association to explore the best ways to improve the situation for both children and adults with narcolepsy wanting to access public swimming facilities safely. If successfully funded, this project will mean that children with narcolepsy will be allowed to take part in water-sports, instead of having to sit out and miss the fun. It will mean adults with narcolepsy will be able to make full use of their local swimming pool, with all the health and mental well-being that such activities offer.

Full information and details of the project application can be found by following this link.

If you want to help make this project happen, there are two ways you can help.

  1. You can vote for us. Each individual is allowed to vote up to 10 times, so please make full use of yours!
  2. You can share this post with friends and on social media, and encourage others to do the same. 

In order to vote you will need to visit the Aviva Community Fund website and register. Don't worry, registration is just to ensure each person only votes up to 10 times.


Remember - the more support it gets, the better the chances of getting funding for this important project, that can enable adults and children with narcolepsy to be able to swim safely.
