Disability Access & Activities
Roscommon Leisure Centres Disability Mission Statement
It is the aim of Roscommon Leisure Centre to make our centre and all activities accessible to all members of the community. The management and staff strive to achieve an inclusive sports centre where all people of all ages and abilities are welcome.
Our sports centre aims to include all adults and children in every aspect of the centre’s programmes. When necessary, support and training is given to teachers or instructors to assist them to adapt classes to include all users. All staff is given in-service training and the option to participate on training courses.
We encourage young people with disabilities to participate in our activity camps and lessons and will adapt our structures and planning to include every child to the fullest if their ability.
Promote positive attitudes towards people with disabilities
Encourage participation by people with disabilities in all the services we provide
Promote and support the employment of people with disabilities
Provide universal accessibility; all environments of the leisure centre should be accessible by everyone.
Roscommon Leisure Centre is committed to our responsibilities in relation to Trade and Employment under the Disability Act 2005 and the Employment Equality Acts 1998, amended 2004. Roscommon Leisure Centre understands that it is illegal to discriminate on grounds of disability in employment, promotion or training, and as employers we must reasonably accommodate people with disabilities to do their job, where the cost is not disproportionate.
The purpose of our Carers’ policy is to ensure equal access for all those who wish to attend Roscommon Leisure Centre and participate in any of the various facilities available. Our Carers Policy states that a carer accompanying a person with a disability, who cannot access the facilities alone, may use the facility free of charge.
