Active Nottingham leisure centres recognised for inclusivity

Active Nottingham’s Harvey Hadden Sports Village and Clifton Leisure Centre, part of Nottingham City Council, have been awarded the Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) Mark for their facilities.

The centres join Ken Martin Leisure Centre to become three of eight centres in the East Midlands and the only centres in Nottingham to have this accreditation.

Run by the English Federation of Disability Sport, the IFI programme is designed to offer disabled people more choice and opportunities to enjoy the benefits of physical activity.

The Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) has been established for many years, supporting leisure centres to become more welcoming and accessible environments to disabled people. Facilities across the country have been awarded the IFI Mark Accreditation to help leisure facilities to get more disabled people physically active.

“As a team, we are extremely pleased to have maintained the IFI mark for another year at Clifton Leisure Centre.  It’s great to see the centre recognised for its commitment to providing accessible services for disabled users, we certainly pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service and facilities for the community and service users,” said Kirsty Worthington, general manager of Clifton Leisure Centre
