This month we celebrate a good new story regarding one of our clubs who use our pool at Ironmonger Row Baths. We are extremely proud to have our We Swim club awarded Toyota Parasport club of the month for May.

We Swim is one of the clubs that uses our pool facilities for their members but with a special focus and aim in mind. We Swim was launched early 2020 to increase the opportunities for people with disabilities to swim in London with a focus on mental, physical and social benefits of a community led club where everyone is welcome. With dedicated pool space and the support of their fantastic volunteers We Swim provides welcoming and safe swimming sessions for swimmers with disabilities.

Initially the club started in our teaching pool which could only accommodates a few members but due to more users signing up, they expanded into our main poo. This just goes to show how much of a demand there is for the service they provide.

As a social enterprise, we at Ironmonger Row Baths / BETTER understand just how important inclusivity is to our local community and are proud to have accessible facilities for We Swim to host their club members. The award received by We Swim this month is from Parasport powered by Toyota, who are dedicated to discovering inclusive local opportunities for people to become more active. They are an organisation that is developed by ParalympicsGB in partnership with Toyota as part of their commitment to making movement better for everyone. We are so glad that Parasport have recognised the fantastic work that We Swim are doing and we hope this gives other potential disable guests that extra boost of confidence in knowing that they have a save and welcoming environment to swim with We Swim at ironmonger Row Baths
