We care about inclusivity!

Facilities and activities for disabled and guests with additional needs

At JR Zone we care about inclusivity. We have flat, level access to the whole ground floor, reserved disabled parking and a specially-adapted washroom with baby changing. Our café tables accommodate wheelchair users.

We welcome visitors with special needs or disabilities and offer a selection of activities for children and young adults through the government backed Short Breaks programme.

If you have any specific concerns or enquiries before making your visit, simply contact us for a friendly chat.

We recently undertook a detailed assessment of JR Zone from an occupational therapist, in conjunction with IW Council.
