Leading an active and healthy lifestyle
Active and inclusive community sessions
We offer community based activity aimed at making being active easy and fun. The programmes are designed to be inclusive and accessible to all, however we focus our promotion on children (aged 5+) and adults with physical and/or learning disabilities or poor mental health. All clients will be asked to complete a pre-activity questionnaire (PARQ) prior to starting and may be asked to seek further information from a licensed medical professional before participating.
Our Wheels for All programme offers friendly inclusive cycling sessions which give individuals a chance to build cycling skills and confidence. The sessions take place on a safe, flat, traffic-free circuit with access to a variety of bikes available, including specialist adapted bikes. The first session is free, £3.00 per session thereafter.
We also work closely with a number of external leisure centres, community groups and clubs to help them deliver a range of inclusive physical activity and sports sessions aimed at adults and children with physical and learning disabilities.
These pay-as-you-go sessions are tailored to give every participant the opportunity to take part in some form of physical activity. A timetable for these sessions (updated monthly) can be found on the Active and Inclusive Swindon website.
Activities include: Football, Ice Skating, Trampolining, Swimming, Tennis, Seated Exercise and Cricket.
