    Aqua-Sensory In 2020 state of the art sensory provision was installed at Scarborough Sports Village through the partnership work and external funding secured by SDSG Where did it all start? In 2019 the charity secured external funding to bring specialist aqua sensory equipment to the Borough of Scarborough here at Scarborough Sports Village. The main funder was Sirius Minerals Foundation who in 2020 enabled us to install state of the art: image projectors, colour changing lights, interactive floating buttons, moving image projectors, apply specialist window film and a specialist control system to enable our Swim Teachers to create a sensory environment to suit their activity. May that be an in water disco for adults and children, Aqua-fit, Aqua-relax, a baby and toddler water exploration class, or activities for older children and adults, including an all age disco. ​ ​ Who else was involved? ​ Other funders included: The Proundfoot Group, Scarborough and Locals Together (SALT), Scarborough Buffs, Scarborough 41 Club and many others. ​ The project is in partnership with Everyone Active and Scarborough Borough Council to ensure as many local residents can benefit from the equipment as possible, particualy, those who many not normaly attend general swim sessions. The equipment was installed by Premier Solutions in 2020.

  • SOCIAL PRESCRIBING | Health | Scarborough Disabled Swimming Group | England

    SOCIAL PRESCRIBING Social prescribing enables GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services to support their health and wellbeing. What is Social Prescribing? Social prescribing, also sometimes known as community referral, is a means of enabling health professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services. The referrals generally, but not exclusively, come from professionals working in primary care settings, for example, GPs or practice nurses. ​ Recognising that people’s health and wellbeing are determined mostly by a range of social, economic and environmental factors , social prescribing seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way. It also aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health. ​ Schemes delivering social prescribing can involve a range of activities that are typically provided by voluntary and community sector organisations. Examples include volunteering, arts activities, group learning, gardening, befriending, swimming, cookery, healthy eating advice and a range of sports. ​ Social prescribing is designed to support people with a wide range of social, emotional or practical needs, and many schemes are focused on improving mental health and physical wellbeing. Those who could benefit from social prescribing schemes include people with mild or long-term mental health problems, people with complex needs, people who are socially isolated and those with multiple long-term conditions who frequently attend either primary or secondary health care. The Well-being Partnership Age Uk Scarborough & District is working with Advocacy Alliance and Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale Mind to provide the Social Prescribing contract across the Scarborough, Filey and Ryedale South areas. ​ Following a referral from your GP or health professional, a link worker from The Well-being Partnership is assigned to help people access local sources of support. ​ Link workers are funded through the local Primary Care Networks (PCNs) to provide this service. How does SDSG fit in? A GP can refer their patient to a link worker (The Well-being Partnership) who then works with the patient to find suitable activities and prescribes them. A social prescription is granted in the form of a referral to a local service provider or community group. They will also help you register with SDSG. ​ Scarborough Disabled Swimming Group is an approved service provider for social prescriptions. ​ Membership and entry fees apply. ​ ​ More information CONTACT US VISIT: THE KINGS FUND VISIT: AGE UK Or speak to your GP.
