New Zealanders from refugee backgrounds participating fully in New Zealand life
Swimming and recreation
Following a request from the Women's Steering group, we ran a programme offering women swimming lessions.
Women's only swimming lessons were arranged with Wellington Aquatic Centre specifically for refugee-background women. Women in Porirua met with staff at the Porirua Recreation Centre to find out what was available locally for physical exercise and swimming activities and discuss barriers to their partcipation. We are grateful to staff at both centres.
