From the very conception of Beau Sejour Leisure Centre, the goal was to cater for people of all abilities. Our aim is to create a disabled-friendly Centre and we take great care to consider the needs of all our customers. Wheelchair access is now available to all areas.
As part of the Centre's most recent renovation programme, a number of adjustments and alterations have been made in order to improve access to and enjoyment of the diverse range of facilities and activities on offer.
A mobile lift has been installed to enable wheelchair users access to the changing rooms and onto the stage, and toilet and wet roomfacilities have been built. This means wheelchair users can now take part in any event taking place in the theatre, with the appropriate facilities available - something they were not previously able to do.Within the auditorium itself, we have removed two chairs at both ends of the back row to enable wheelchair users to attend performances accompanied by a carer. A hearing loop system has also been installed in the Theatre.
A number of recent improvements have been made to enhance disabled people's experience of the Centre
• Nine car park spaces for registered disabled blue badge holders have been introduced immediately outside the Main Reception.
• Staircase nosing in the concourse and on the stairs leading up to the main reception is now white to assist those who are visually impaired.
• Larger signage has been installed to help those who are visually impaired.
• A wheelchair height section of the main reception desk has been built.
• Disabled toilets are located throughout the Centre and within the various changing areas. All disabled toilets are fitted with assistance alarms.
• Larger print versions of the Centre's publicity and information material is available on request from Reception.
Any carer required by a disabled person will be admitted free to an event held on any of the Sport and Recreation Service's properties when a full price ticket has been purchased. Forms to apply as a registered carer are available at Reception. Registered guide and assistance dogs are welcome.
