Project description:

Children and Adults with disabilities currently have use of some very outdated facilities at Oaklands Community Pool. We have a lot of essential services such as a accessible changing room, manual hoist and ambulant toilet/ shower. However, the current offering of accessible services is now in need of updating. We are working on raising funds to renew and upgrade the accessible changing facilities on site.

With running costs for the venue exceeding £500’000.00 per year, projects can take some time to get off the ground. If you can donate to our funding pages or support is any way it would be hugely beneficial in getting the facilities updated in good time.

We thank you for your help with our cause.
