Supported swim


We offer swimming sessions which have been developed to offer a safe and friendly environment for people who need extra support when coming to the swimming pool.

All of our leisure centres are closed until further notice.

All memberships, including fitness, swimming and swimming lessons, will be frozen for the period of the closure and direct debit payments will be automatically adjusted. If you have paid up front for any membership, the period of the closure will be added to the end of your contract.

While we are closed, we hope you can remain physically active  - see our Keep active in your home information and look out for links on our social media, @DurhamThriveActive, providing information on how you can keep moving and stay healthy.

Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for our service updates, including information about re-opening.

What is it and how can it help me?

If you need additional support to come along to a swimming session, come along and take part in one of our supported swimming sessions at Spennymoor leisure centre. 

We offer weekly supported swimming sessions which take place during public swimming times. Our aim is to help you have a safe, enjoyable and stress free visit. You'll be welcomed by our specially trained staff who are there to support you if you need it at reception, in the changing area and in the pool.

Where can I join a session? 

Spennymoor leisure centre

2.30pm - 3.30pm every Monday.

Contact Spennymoor Leisure Centre for more information.

All sessions cost £2.80 including refreshments and are free to carers supporting someone who comes along for the session. 

Even if you haven't been swimming for years and are not sure if you can remember how, come along and give it a try. You can either turn up to the session or contact us first if you would like to have a chat about anything beforehand.
