We are pleased to share our new tagline ‘Putting community, health and wellness first’ which represents everything we stand for here at Barrow Park Leisure Centre.
As a not-for-profit organisation we are able to put our community first, reinvesting in accessible, high-quality leisure facilities and services which allow people to live healthier, happier lives.
And each and every member plays a pivotal part in helping us to achieve that through their membership.
Being a not-for-profit organisation also means we can bid for funding opportunities, which is something we are always working on in the background.
We are delighted to share that several of our recent bids have been successful and we’ve been awarded funding to help combat loneliness and inactivity among Barrow’s older adults with indoor bowls, table tennis and pickleball.
These new sessions are being added to our timetable alongside our usual walking football and netball sessions and health walks in the neighbouring park.
We’re also delivering ‘exercise on prescription’ for patients waiting for hospital surgery, to help them prepare for their operation and improve their recovery time, along with healthy weight programmes to support locals battling obesity.
And that’s in addition to our thriving Falls Prevention Programme and warm hub status.
As we strive to make an impact with all of these new initiatives, we are truly putting community, health and wellness first in Barrow.
We couldn’t do any of this amazing work in the community without you and your memberships, so thank you!
