ACCESSIBILITY

 

At 360 we pride ourselves on being accessible for all. We have disabled parking facilities to enable easy access to all our facilities, the public waterfront promenade and the beautiful sandy beach.

Our building and its layout have been designed to allow easy access and manoeuvrability for all; our facilities are on the ground floor with no steps or lifts.

We are the only beach side location in Wales that has a Changing Places toilet facility. Changing Places Facilities are for people with profound learning disabilities, physical and other serious impairments. With 12m² floor space the facility provides extra features and more space than regular disabled toilets, thus ensuring the needs of both users and carers are met. Our facility includes a full room cover automatic tracked hoist system, an adult sized height adjustable showering / changing bench and a separate shower unit, a toilet, large power-assisted height-adjustable washbasin, safety alarm and retractable privacy curtain, along with all the extras you would expect in a facility of this type.

The changing places facility is clearly signed on the exterior of the building and is available for use during 360 opening hours; this ensures we can provide a safe and clean environment for your use. Keys for this facility are available from the 360 Cafe Bar.  Please note you will need to provide your own sling for the hoist, the hoist is suitable for use with a hook and loop system sling.  For more information on Changing Place visit http://www.changing-places.org

We also have 2 Lanedeez beach wheelchairs which are available to hire free of charge.  Please note the wheelchairs are not electric & cannot be propelled by the user, another person is required to push the chair.  You are welcome to take the wheelchairs off site and can borrow them overnight.  They need to be collected & returned during our opening hours.  Upon collection you will be required to complete a Declaration Form.  A £100 deposit is also required in cash or on card upon collection of each wheelchair, this will be refunded to you upon return of the chair.  ‘Click Here’ to view the declaration form.

Inside 360 we have a regular unisex disabled toilet and separate male and female disabled use shower and changing facilities. We have beach suitable wheelchairs available for use which are provided by City and County of Swansea. We also welcome guide and other assistance dogs.
