The laws and systems surrounding disability welfare are changing drastically, such as the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and Reasonable Accommodation.
It is becoming more and more commonplace to welcome people with disabilities to swimming schools and swimming lessons, and to have disabled swim instructors in the workplace.
It has become mandatory to employ people with disabilities if you have 50 or more employees, and we often hear things like “there is a child with a developmental disability in the gray zone” among the students in front of you.
On the other hand, even if Japan has established the law, schools and organizations that have not had “swimmers with disabilities” before may still have concerns about accepting them as customers or hiring them as employees.
The laws and individual systems involved will certainly be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years for swimming schools and athletic facilities.
Our association has been working in business partnership with major companies for more than 10 years, using our experience as welfare counselors and over 10 years of individual support for a total of more than 1,100 people annually.
We provide total support for companies, corporations, and organizations for swimming for people with disabilities.
