Summary of the service offer:

Rebound Therapy - a form of physiotherapy where we use trampolines to provide therapeutic exercises to people with a wide variety of disabilities and additional needs. By using our sensory equipment on our sunken trampolines (complete with hoist) we can offer therapeutic exercise to anyone with special needs who will benefit from sensory feedback, interaction and fun.

Disability Gymnastics - For children Cheshire Gymnastics run a specialist disability class at The Wingate Centre on Saturday afternoons between 3.30pm – 4.30pm. This is a small group class with a low coach to student ratio.
1-2-1’s - If your child’s or young adult’s disabilities are more profound or they prefer a quieter environment then we can offer individual classes (subject to availability). Our coaches can develop tailor-made programs incorporating gymnastics equipment and movement to extend fitness and mobility.
