We're teaming up with the Work Path team at Tower Hamlets Council to encourage local residents to train as lifeguards and swimming teachers as part of the re-opening of York Hall Leisure Centre in late June 2022. We're all about local people working in their local facilities!
What's more, as part of our charitable social enterprise remit we've stepped in to fully fund the cost of National Pool Lifeguard Qualifications (NPLQ) and swim teaching courses for Tower Hamlets residents.
