Please note: Carers are not necessarily required to accompany the participant in the water. Contact us to discuss how we can support those wishing to attend this session.


the participants always have a smile on their faces and get a lot out of the session. It is also great for the carers to meet other people in the same situation and gives them a bit of a break as well.
