We want to provide some reassurance to our Sportspark users about the current situation around the use of changing spaces at the Sportspark.
The welfare of all our users is of paramount importance and we take all aspects of privacy, decency, health and safety of the centre and its users very seriously.
We have designated male and female changing spaces and we provide a range of changing options for our users. These include separate accessible changing, self-contained changing cubicles as well as group change spaces. We also provide self-contained shower facilities in addition to our communal changing areas.
We fully recognise the complexities and sensitivities of balancing the rights and needs of different groups accessing public spaces, together with our legal responsibilities when providing appropriate facilities.
We are a facility that listens to our users’ concerns and we are actively reviewing our policies to ensure they continue to be in line with legal and regulatory requirements and good practice. All feedback from Sportspark users is greatly valued and we will be including this into the next review of our facilities.
We aim to ensure all users can access spaces with privacy and dignity and we would ask all Sportspark users to be respectful of others and sensitive to different personal circumstances when using our facilities. Users are reminded that they can report any behavioural or safeguarding concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org or the Manager on Duty.
We would ask all Sportspark users to be respectful of others and sensitive to different personal circumstances when using our facilities, including Sportspark staff members.
