Disabled Swim Session Support

← Back to search results

  • We run an inclusive swim session for those with mental or physical impairments who think they might benefit from joining the group. Swim sessions will take place on Mondays 1:30-3pm at Tandridge Leisure Centre, Oxted. Volunteers are needed to support participants in joining in the swims. Swim abilities and care requirements will vary, from encouragement and support in the pool to assistance in changing.
  • Sessions are fun and friendly, and encourage participants to improve their fitness whilst also making friends. A whole range of people attend the sessions, including people with limited vision, those¬†recovering from operations, increasing fitness after illness, managing conditions such as arthritis and mental health challenges.
  • Participants really benefit from the swim sessions and so volunteering to support them is a real feel-good opportunity.
