The Branch has a number of member groups.  Some are clubs, some are schools, and some are centres specialising in training pool Lifeguards.

The clubs are run by volunteers and usually meet on a weekly basis at a local swimming pool.  Each offers training in Life Saving and Life Support skills which usually lead to taking one of the Society's awards or qualifications.

Most clubs do not offer swimming lessons, you need to be reasonably competent in the water before taking part but your ability will improve as you go through the training.
