About us

The Pool was built in 1977 through donations received through public subscription for the children and adults in the community who have mental and physical health problems. The fundraising was led by members of Westmorland Mencap, who have continued their support for the Pool ever since, more latterly through the Trustees of South Lakeland Hydrotherapy Trust.

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

  • Regain fitness following an operation or accident

  • Ease pain
