Swimming pool accessibility

All of our facilities are accessible for wheelchair users. We have ramps and lifts installed at each site. If you visit any of our centres, our staff can show you the facilities and discuss your needs with you.

We have hoists at Active Medlock, Active Copley and Active Denton. Active Hyde is also very accessible, due to its sloped entrance into the water. 

At Active Ashton we do not have a hoist to assist in entrance to the pool, however you are welcome to bring your wheelchair onto the poolside. Our lifeguards are more than happy to assist in any way they can, by stabilising your wheelchair while you enter the pool, and they will then move your chair to the side until you are ready to leave the pool.

Gym accessibility

Our gyms have wheelchair friendly resistance machines. Please ask a member of staff if you require any assistance.
