We have a big job on our hands, and we know it takes a village; so please consider supporting us on our mission.
Below are just some of the many ways in which you can show your support. Get your workplace involved! Get your friends involved! Together, let’s make inclusion, safety and education priorities for everyone.
Please show your support by donating today!
Your donation today will help our dedicated team provide the vital ongoing support those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)/other abilities need in and around the water, and help fund world leading research and strategies into reducing the drowning statistics for those who are considered such high risk.
Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis has risen 1150% since 1995.
Children with ASD are 160 times more likely to drown than their peers.
Your support is needed now more than ever! Their future is in your hands.
What do your donations go toward?

Partner with us
Do something meaningful for your business, the community at large and for people living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Inspire your staff, clients, and customers through a tailored partnership with Autism Swim.
Partnerships make a significant contribution to our ability to deliver services, educate and facilitate change.
Linking your brand or product to Autism Swim can aid in increasing your sales, brand exposure, and consumer loyalty and retention; whilst simultaneously undertaking your community and corporate responsibility to contribute socially and have impact.
Our sponsorship options provide opportunity for:
1. Strategic brand alignment;
2. Staff and client/customer benefits; and most importantly
3. The pursuit of inclusivity.
Not only will you be supporting a cause that enriches the lives of others, you’ll be contributing to work that has the potential to save lives.
Our partnerships are tiered, to offer you choice in which option best aligns with the inclusive direction of your organisation right now. You may choose to sponsor a one-off event, or you may like to commit to our cause on an ongoing basis over 3 years. The partnership may be product-only, financial-only, or a mix of both. The costs associated with most partnerships are tax-deductible.
