Bath Swim Therapy providing swimming sessions for children with any special needs or disability.
Bath Swim Therapy provides hydrotherapy and specialised swimming lessons for disabled and special needs children and young people in Trowbridge and Frome during term time. Because of their types of disabilities and special needs these children are not able to access any other swimming sessions as they need small, fully accessible warm water pools. We run two sessions a week in term time, one in each location, catering for up to a dozen children and their parents/carers.Why the community needs us
Our sessions provide disabled/special needs children with the specialist teaching they need to become safe and confident in the water and ultimately to swim independently. Their parents/carers learn how they can work with their children in the water so they become confident to take their children swimming on their own or with family & friends.Our impact on the community
The children and the parents who attend our sessions gain enormously in confidence and self esteem as they spend quality time together enjoying the water and acquiring an essential life skill. Swimming can become a valuable form of exercise for them as well as an enjoyable recreational activity which they can participate in with family & friends. It may also enable some to take part in other water based sports or even continue to a competitive level in the future
The parents of the children who benefit from swimming therapy sessions have a lot on their plates and cannot necessarily commit to meetings and ad hoc tasks. Could you? Sessions currently held in Frome and Trowbridge. Meetings usually in Bath.
