(muscular problems, back problems, limited sight, learning difficulties, wheelchair user, etc.)

We meet on Mondays, during school terms, in the centre of Durham City at 7p.m.

The pool is about 4 feet deep everywhere (just over waist high on most adults),
with easy access , and a hoist

We have plenty of helpers in the water,
to give support,
teach you to swim
or just to give you confidence.

We also have a range of swimming aids
from arm bands to body floats.

Helpers teach you to swim, if you wish,
or play games with you if you prefer.
