Swimming is much more than a sport, much more than a leisure activity. It’s a survival skill.We partnered with Studio Exception, an inclusive innovation consultancy, to conduct interviews with Black swimmers and non-swimmers across the UK. Our goal was to gain insight into the barriers that keep many of us from learning to swim in our communities around the UK.
We identified six significant barriers that limit us from learning the water safety skills needed to safeguard ourselves and our families. These six obstacles prevent us from fully enjoying water activities and swimming proud.
Our mission is to help break down these barriers. All of us should feel comfortable in the water, nothing should stand in our way.Not shame. Not history. Not fear. Not accessibility. Accessibility is a barrier SOUL CAP has the power to help change.
SOUL CAP is donating £100,000 over the next 5 years to Black swim projects.
We're committed to supporting swimming programmes and water-safety initiatives throughout the UK.
Through our the SOUL CAP Foundation, we will help mobilise grassroot initiatives.
The fund can be used in various ways, such as supporting the cost of swim lessons, providing financial assistance to aspiring swim teachers, purchasing equipment, and promoting community-based swim initiatives within the Black community.
Applications for this round of funding are now closed, but we will be reopening in late February for new submissions. Thank you for your support!

Our research included six swimmers and five non-swimmers, who shared common opinions and struggles. Although each of their paths into the water – or away from it – has its own individual barriers.
