Additional Needs Activities


Havant and Waterlooville Leisure Centres' activities are all fully inclusive and we actively welcome those with additional needs. However, we also provide a few specially organized activity sessions for those that prefer it. Should you have any concerns that may be stopping you using any of our facilities or classes we would encourage you to contact our Disability and Special Needs Coordinator, Debbie Jarmaine (023 9247 6026).

We have strong links with the Parent Voice, Hampshire Autistic Society, and the Hampshire County Councils Short Breaks Team and a large number of our staff have received additional needs training. We are committed to do what we can to enable everyone to participate.
