Second Pool Hoist now available at Purbeck Sports Centre

Purbeck Sports Centre have been able to install a second new hoist for their changing facility and swimming pool. Thanks to a Dorset County Council Short Break Capital Grant Scheme we have been able to install a second new hoist for our changing facility and swimming pool.

The additional hoist will benefit people that are wheelchair and non-weight bearing users. Both hoists will give people the opportunity to participate in a sporting activity that is fun and extremely beneficial to a person's health and wellbeing.

The hoists will be available during all public swimming sessions, however, please note that there is a requirement for anyone using the new hoist to bring assistance with them as the Sports Centre staff are unable to assist with changing and transfers. As this requirement is in place there will be no charge for helpers/carers to use the swimming pool. Qualified lifeguards supervise the safety of the pool and its customers at all times. Please contact the Centre for an up-to-date swimming programme.
