Bedford Borough Council Disability Sport: accessible pools questionnaire

The Council has allocated £50,000 to spend on capital projects to improve the accessibility of swimming pools within Bedford Borough.

To enable the Council to improve access to swimming pools we need to understand what the current situation is and if there are any barriers to accessibility.  Please complete the questionnaire by clicking here by Friday 2nd December 2022.  The information gathered will enable the Council to commission equipment to be used in local swimming pools.
