Accessibility & Inclusivity

At Unity we believe that everyone should have the access to holistic health regardless of ability age or financial situation. For a community to truly thrive everyone’s needs should be considered and supported. This is how we flourish.

Accessibility

There is one disabled parking space at the Broomans Lane entrance with disability access via a ramp and fitted rails to enable easier access to the main building.

We have a wheelchair accessible toilet in the main studio building with an adult changing table. There is also a disability hoist for use in the studios or float room.

There is also a buzzer system for disabled users with their own ramped entrance at the rear of the property.

All door widths are accessible by wheelchair (except the sauna and outdoor treatment room).

The floatation pool accommodates two people so that a carer can accompany disabled users.

For those who are partially sighted or with visual impairments, we have taken care with colours chosen throughout the centre. Assistance dogs are also welcome.

We have specialist yoga and bodywork equipment available with specialist teachers, facilitators and masseurs available.

Our Massage and Bodywork Therapists use specialist tables which are adjustable for various bodies and abilities and the Therapists are trained to a high level to take care of people’s specific needs.

YOGA IS FOR EVERY BODY!

We offer free entry to carers/ personal assistants (personal use of facilities by carers/ personal assistants is chargeable).

We have liaised with Lewes Access Group and Seeability to ensure our Centre is inclusive and accessible to all.

Inclusivity

We run classes and offer treatments for people with a range of disabilities and illnesses including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, Arthritis, Heart Conditions, Stroke, Diabetes and people with a wide range of mobility issues.  We are also inclusive of all LGBT and offer classes with sign language.

  • Affordable Community Classes offered at least twice per week on a donation basis. These classes are taught by well-qualified teachers who work at the centre on the main timetable on a rotation basis. When registering for this class the client agrees to confirm eligibility according to status as unemployed, in receipt of benefits etc and is told that they must be willing to produce evidence of their income status on visiting the centre.
  • Specific classes are offered on the weekly timetable targeting specific groups such as teenagers, recovering addicts and the elderly. These are charged at a reduced rate between £5 and £8. These will be programmed on a half termly basis so that we can reach different demographics.
