Swan Lifeline is the oldest registered charity devoted entirely to the care of sick and injured swans in the Thames Valley and surrounding area. Originally known as Save Our Swans (SOS), it was founded in 1984 by a small group that had already long been involved with swan rescue and treatment.
Initially Swan Life Line 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. Their work is possible only through generous donations and other support from the general public, our sponsors, trustees and volunteers. So far, they have rescued and treated more than 20,000 swans. Charity no. 299254
