Rainbow Club Australia has expanded its network to regional areas in northern NSW thanks to a grant from Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation (NPCF).

Four new clubs have been established in Muswellbrook, Armidale, Taree, Forster and the reopening of Tamworth, providing an opportunity for children in those areas to have an equal opportunity to learn water safety and enjoy the physical and social benefits of swimming.

NPCF Executive Officer Carly Bush says the Foundation is a proud supporter of Rainbow Club Australia’s work to provide inclusive opportunities to children living with disability.

“Our Foundation was delighted to provide $60,000 to Rainbow Club to take their fun and supportive swimming clubs to new communities. It has been exciting seeing the clubs roll out in their new locations starting with Muswellbrook in October 2022, with the final club in Tamworth reopening in October last year.”

“Often families living in regional areas miss out on the support and programs available in bigger cities, which makes it even more special that we have helped Rainbow Club expand. NPCF provides grants to community projects that make a significant difference to the lives of disadvantaged people in regional NSW and we know Rainbow Club is doing just that.”
