All Together Ambassador Suzanne Warren has created an Essex Disability Swimming Map to help people find inclusive or disability specific swimming opportunities in pools across Essex.

The Downloadable Resource above highlights these opportunities. It’s always a good idea to check with the leisure centre before you swim as sessions will be subject to change during school holidays etc.

Some are sessions where you can just go and swim within the disability specific session and some have instructors to assist. Where possible the contact details have been added for you. On the timetables,

  • Those highlighted in green blocks are centres without swimming pools but may offer other activities suitable to those with disabilities. Contact them directly for more help or visit our Disability Sport & Physical Activity Activity Finder>>.
  • Those highlighted in orange blocks have aqua sessions which are aimed at all abilities.
  • Those highlighted in blue blocks are disability/ long term health condition specific sessions.
  • Facilities with Changing Places and Pool Hoists have also been highlighted
