Welcome! Fledglings is now run by Contact, the charity for families with disabled children. We’re working hard to make sure orders get to you quickly but until we transfer everything over to Contact, this might take longer than usual. Thanks for your patience and apologies for any delay – we expect to be in full swing again by 28th February.
Made from high-grade soft neoprene, our buoyancy jacket allows for a snug and comfortable fit. The jacket incorporates eight internal float pockets, which positions the buoyancy around the wearer's torso and, most importantly, below the water line. This provides the stability to give the wearer confidence and freedom in the water, whilst crucially allowing their arms to remain free and unencumbered, helping them to learn and practise swimming strokes.
As the wearer's ability progresses, the floats can be removed in pairs to reduce the buoyancy and encourage further development.

Soft Lycra binding minimises chafing.

Supports the wearer in the water. The torso is supported but not lifted out of the water, encouraging the child to learn how to move their limbs effectively in the water.
Allows natural movements of the limbs, developing swimming strokes.

Please note: the Konfidence Jacket is an effective safety aid but the wearer should not be left unattended in the water at any time.
