14 Jan 2013 (archived)Discounted leisure membership for disabled people
A new discounted leisure centre membership card is now available for disabled people living in West Oxfordshire.
For just £19.95 a month disabled residents will be able to join the Windrush, Carterton, Chipping Norton and Bartholomew leisure centres. Their carers would be able to use the facilities for free.
Cllr Richard Langridge, Cabinet Member responsible for leisure said, "I'm sure the discounted card will be greatly welcomed by our disabled leisure centre users and it will encourage more people to join and reap the benefits of getting fitter. Improving disabled access to our leisure centres has been a Council priority for many years and so I am delighted to see the new Inclusive card introduced."
The new Inclusive membership is being offered through West Oxfordshire District Council's operating partner, GLL.
Peter Bundey, GLL Deputy Managing Director said: "As the largest provider of public sport and leisure facilities in the UK, one of GLL's key corporate aims is to maximise opportunities to increase and sustain sports participation as part of the legacy of the Olympic and Paralympic games. The Better Inclusive card is an important part of our basket of initiatives and programmes to provide practical ways of promoting participation and performance within disability sport".
The membership provides:
Anyone over 16 years old will be able to get an Inclusive leisure centre membership, as long as they are in receipt of any of the following: severe disablement allowance; mobility allowance; disability living allowance; industrial injuries disablement benefit; disablement benefit; attendance allowance; employment and support allowance.
