The Black Swimming Association - Janice Azu and Sarah Giles

The Black Swimming Association (BSA) is a non-profit organisation and first of its kind set up to highlight the value of swimming as an essential life-saving skill for all communities. The BSA works to promote the education of ethnically diverse communities of African, Caribbean and Asian heritage on water safety, drowning prevention and the benefits of aquatics. Through collaboration with other charities, NBGs and brands, the BSA is driving participation and inclusion for all in aquatics from grassroots to boardroom. Within the last two years, the BSA has gone from a simple concept to a nationally recognised fledgling organisation positioned as a disruptive force within the aquatic sector. The BSA is tackling inherent systemic and institutional inequalities, breaking barriers to participation and driving change for more ethnic diversity in aquatics; ensuring everyone has equal and equitable access, feels included and has a safe and quality experience in and around water.
