Hydrotherapy Sessions

We fund a weekly session at the Sandgate Hydrotherapy Pool in Kendal.

The Pool (which is operated by Cumbria County Council) was originally built by Westmorland Mencap Society for the children of Sandgate Special School but with sessions for community use.


Over the years the facility has been increasingly used by adults, with physical health problems and/or mental illness as a means exercising to maintain health or when rehabilitating from injury, or general and orthopaedic surgery.

Sandgate Hydrotherapy Pool offers a unique service to the population of Cumbria, the benefits of hydrotherapy have been well known for many years. The Pool offers these benefits to swimmers and non-swimmers alike in a supportive, non-competitive environment that affords privacy. Key benefits for Pool users include the ability to:

  • Move more easily

  • Relax your body

  • Regain fitness following an operation or accident

  • Ease pain

  • Perform gentle all body exercises

  • Improve circulation and breathing

  • Build self confidence
