Pool hoist access is available using a sling or the pool-dipper pool chair (maximum user weight 135kgs [22st])
Leisure attendants are happy to assist wheelchair users who require the pool hoist, but individuals need to provide their own slings for entry into the pool if they need sling hoisting rather than using the pool-dipper pool chair. Advance notice is not required but can be helpful

Double doors facilitate access to the sports hall for individuals using a sports or wider powered or manual wheelchair
Essential carers accompanying an individual to enable them to access our services are not charged for entry, as long as they are supporting the individual throughout rather than following their own exercise programme. A carer who wishes to participate in their own exercise programme or in a class alongside the person they support is very welcome, but normal charges will apply
The Your Card Extra scheme offers discounts for individuals with disabilities and for unpaid carers, older adults and those on restricted income
Our website uses one or more analytical statistical data collection programs to assemble records about who uses the site, from where, how often, what pages, how long on each page, and many other items of statistical importance that allow us to improve our effectiveness in the supply of web experiences.
