Welcome to Swan Lifeline

Swan Lifeline is the oldest registered charity devoted entirely to the care of sick and injured swans in the Thames Valley and surrounding area.

Initially we worked from private homes, as we sought a suitable centre. In 1992 Eton College offered us the lease of Cuckoo Weir Island free of charge. The following year, after building a treatment centre and outside pens, Swan Lifeline moved in.

Our work is possible only through generous donations and other support from the general public, our sponsors, trustees and volunteers.
