Here at the leisure centre, making our services and facilities accessible to all is our priority. From the second you walk through the doors at HLC our team will extend their usual warm welcome to assist those less mobile if required.
Getting around – doors leading to our sports and leisure facilities are wheelchair friendly, we have a ramp leading to the pool area and a lift to provide access to the first floor gym.
Our Peninsular toilet/changing area is a private space suitable for one individual plus carer/helper at any given time. There’s a toilet, adjustable wash basin, privacy screen, adapted shower, adjustable changing bench and ceiling hoist (although you are welcome to bring along your personal sling if preferred). This facility is alarmed if you need help quickly.
Our Changing place facility is available near the sports hall, offering an adapted toilet/washbasin, space to get changed and an alarm system for peace of mind.
Over at the pool, there’s a special hoist available providing easy access. We have three swimming pools in total, which can be hired privately by groups or individuals.
If you are planning on visiting us and need a little help using some our disabled facilities; please phone ahead on 01352 355 100.
