More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

The Warm Water Swimming & Exercise Network has been set up for people in Bath and the surrounding area who, because of disability, injury or a long-term medical condition, need warm water for swimming and exercise to help improve and maintain their long-term health & fitness.

Our aim is to promote and improve warm water facilities available to the public, but we also believe that a new public access warm water pools are desperately needed in the Bath area.

We want to contact people in Bath and the surrounding area who, because of disability, injury or a long-term medical condition, need warm water for swimming and exercise to help improve their condition and maintain their long-term health & fitness. We are then asking them to feed back to us about whether these are meeting their needs – or not as the case may be!

Armed with this information, we will then be in a position to present local planners with a clear case for the provision of a new affordable, fully accessible, public access warm water pool at the earliest opportunity.

The WWISE Network is currently funded by a Get Funded Grant from the Bath & NE Somerset Council Sport & Active Leisure Team.
