Research has found that within Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) groups, awareness of the importance of swimming and lifesaving skills is significantly less than the rest of the population.

Alarmingly, in the last 5 years there has been 50 drowning deaths in WA of members of the CaLD community, this is 37% of all drowning deaths. Action is required to develop a response to the range of factors that are influencing CaLD communities lack of participation in swimming & water safety education.
