Aberdeen LTS is delighted to introduce our new Inclusion program. The program is currently being guided by two of our teachers, Ross and Melissa who are responsible for looking after our swimmers with extra support. As a Learn to Swim Scheme, we aim to be proactive and ensure we build a friendly and welcoming environment for all children. If you have a child with a physical disability or if you have a child who requires assistance when learning, email us and we will arrange a meeting with either of the teachers, who will explain the pathway available.

      Aberdeen ASC has been awarded funding from sportscotland to provide free period products for its members. The £100 grant is part of a £50,000 fund awarded to sportscotland by the Scottish Government. The investment will allow people to have access to free period products when they are participating in sport, so people feel included and welcome to take part in club and community sport and no one has to miss out. Jacqueline Lynn, head of school and community sport at sportscotland, said: "Sport has a positive impact on people and communities and sportscotland wants to ensure sport is accessible to all. These grants will help sports clubs across Scotland ensure all members feel included, comfortable and dignified when they take part. “It is important we continue to celebrate female participation across our world-class sporting system and make sure everyone feels they belong and are welcome to participate.”
