One+Plus One Assistance Scheme at SIV

Are you aware of the Sheffield International Venues ( SIV ) One+Plus One scheme. The scheme provides free access for a carer, family member, support worker or friend for anyone requiring support to part in leisure opportunities. SIV has told us that over 100 people have benefited from the scheme over the past year, with over 6,000 attendances and are keen to make sure that people know about and use the scheme.

One+Plus One can be used for gym and fitness classes, casual swimming and swimming lessons, casual ice skating and ice skating lessons at venues across the city – Concord Sports Centre, Hillsborough Leisure Centre, English Institute of Sport Sheffield, iceSheffield, Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, Springs Leisure Centre and Heeley Swimming Pool.View SIV Plus+One Flyer.

To take advantage of the Plus+One scheme all you have to is purchase a membership card ( Sheffield Lifecard or Sheffield Lifecard Plus ) from any of the above venues and then select ‘YES’ to the question: ‘Do you require additional support to access our venues?’ Visit www.siv.org.uk for more information on membership, venues, activities and timetables.

When attending any of the venues, all you have to do is present your membership card when paying for your activity and your One+Plus One supporter will be given complimentary access.

You can take a look online at Sheffield International Venues or pop into any of them to find out more about these activities and the relevant timetables.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
