Sports Membership Scheme for Disabled Children and Young People

Posted on Updated on

Since 30 June 2017, Sports Services have been running a new membership project aimed at assisting and promoting the inclusion of SEND children and young people.

The membership scheme will enable children and young people 5-25 to access swimming and gym provision across all Sports Services facilities.

The cost is £10 per month by direct debit or £120 for a 12 month cash advance. There is a ‘pro-rata’ payment charge but no joining fee.

Application forms can be collected or completed at any swimming pool or leisure centre following production of relevant eligibility (DLA letter or reference number, letter from GP or school) and clients will then be issued with a membership card.

For further information contact Debbie Greenwood, Disability Sports Development Officer on 01422 341527 or emailing debbie.greenwood@calderdale.gov.uk

For more information about what is on offer view the Disability Sports Directory online.
