Why Swim Australia?
Australian Unity’s ambition is to become Australia’s leading wellbeing company. This ambition has many components, one of which has seen us forge a strong connection with swimming and, more specifically, with learning to swim.
Australian Unity works with Swim Australia to identify opportunities that will benefit swim schools, parents, their customers and the wider community. We believe swimming is a skill for life that provides health benefits alongside mental and physical development opportunities. In addition, swimming is an extremely enjoyable experience that improves community connectedness.
Australian Unity is also involved in the arts; research in preventative health; the Australian Unity Wellbeing Index; and a number of charities across social welfare, environment and education sector.
