Health and wellbeing

Funding level: £10,001 to £25,000

Description

We are a special school with pupils who have complex health, physical and cognitive disabilities. We need a Hydrotherapy pool as currently we travel a round trip of 40 miles to access a pool in another county twice a week. Hydrotherapy will improve the physical development of our pupils and their wellbeing.It brings laughter to the faces of our pupils who experience weightlessness and freedom in the water. As our pupils use a wheelchair every day, hydrotherapy allows them to keep their muscles supple and slow down the deterioration or wastage of muscles.
People shoudl vote for this project as we will open the doors to all disabled people in our community in the evenings so that a wide range of people can access this therapy and improve their wellbeing and quality of life.
