Leisure, recreation and sport
Leisure Recreation and Sport play an important part of life; it's an excellent way of relieving stress, improving health and wellbeing and, most importantly, having fun.
Our Leisure Recreation and Sports (LRS) Team offer a number of sessions and we can provide information on local services including leisure centres, youth clubs, sports clubs, coaching. Our staff are also available to visit local sports clubs to give advice on meeting the needs of disabled people..
Our partners include Warrington Wolves Foundation, Warrington Youth Club, Warrington Parents and Carers, LiveWire and Warrington Borough Council. The main focus of our work is sports for disabled children and young disabled people, but we also offer services for adults focussed on health and well-being.
