Promoting the good health benefits and safe enjoyment of the sea
We are a Brighton-based community interest project that was created by life-long swimmers to encourage people who may not necessarily get the chance to safely enjoy the sea and its amazing health benefits.
We’re looking to work with community organisations and registered charities to build bespoke swimming courses that would fit their service users.
Each course will be run by our highly experienced team to ultimately help improve the mental and physical health of service users by swimming and bathing in the sea, or ‘blue therapy’ as it’s also called.
What SeaSure does
As passionate sea swimmers ourselves, we understand how much of a positive impact sea swimming and bathing can have on people, and we want to spread the word.
It doesn’t matter what your background is, the sea is there for everyone to use, and it’s free! But it does command respect and that’s where we come in.
SeaSure provides the relevant expertise to run swimming courses for people who would like to try sea swimming but need a bit of support to make the most of the experience. By partnering with voluntary organisations we will run bespoke courses so that everyone who might be able to benefit, can.
The Goals of SeaSure
To reach people who might benefit from safely enjoying swimming in the sea, we partner with organisations such as the University of Portsmouth to develop bespoke courses. They help to identify, encourage and support people who may gain the health benefits of blue therapy.
We’re always looking for organisations and volunteers to work with us, so why not get involved?
Our courses are safe, supportive, inclusive and most of all, fun. Each one is led by our team of experienced coaches, lifelong sea swimmers and safety experts. They’ll teach you how to read the sea, the waves and the currents so you can make safe and informed choices of when it’s okay to go in and when it’s not.
They’ll draw on ideas from psychology, mindfulness and blue therapy to adapt each course so that everyone can benefit from the well-being that comes from swimming in the sea. That could be by connecting to your mind and body in a more positive way, finding a community of likeminded people, or simply having a space to escape from the stresses of day to day life.
Whichever it is, our aim is for everyone to come out of the water with a smile on their face.
At SeaSure, we’re keen to help the scientific studies around the therapeutic effects of sea swimming and blue therapy. We’re thrilled to be collaborating with institutions such as The University of Portsmouth and the University of Leeds, and are always looking for new research partners, so get in touch if you would like to know more.
