Accessibility at SWFLC
Our South Woodham Ferrers Leisure Centre (SWFLC) is centrally located in South Woodham.
We offer four extra wide accessible parking bays at South Woodham. These are positioned in the car park adjacent to the centre.
Access into the centre
All entrances and exits are level flooring with a low sloped ramp for entrance/exit, as well as a wide glass barrier for wheelchair entrance/exit.
Movement around centre
The centre has level floors all around the ground floor, as well as easy access male and female changing rooms. We have wide access and entry and exit routes throughout the centre.
Visual impairments and assistance animals
The doors and signage are in contrasting colours to their surrounds to make them more easily identifiable. Assistance animals are welcome in centre to assist their owners.
Changing and toilets
We have a Changing Places facility at South Woodham Ferrers located in the swimming pool changing room, this facility contains two lockers.
No lockers in the dry change facility, we would recommend using the pool facility for changing and then access all Dry facilities from here.
In the swimming pool we have two accessible toilets in addition to the changing places facility.
We have a pool hoist providing access to our pool. Please let our receptionist know when you arrive that you require a hoist to access the pool and we will ensure this is in place ready for your use.
The spectator area is easily accessible through the door next to the eating area and vending machines. Once in the viewing area you will find three areas set into the viewing seating designed for wheelchair access.
Our gym is fully accessible to those with visual impairments, including those with assistance animals, and wheelchair users.
