Work to build a hydrotherapy pool at RNIB Pears Centre for Specialist Learning in Coventry, North Warwickshire is now underway.
"Children and young people with complex health needs and sensory impairments benefit so much from hydrotherapy. It gives them freedom of movement and gentle but vital exercise in a safe environment. They are also able to enjoy calm and relaxation. For children who use mechanical ventilation, expert help to experience hydrotherapy is one of the few physical activities they can participate in.
