Parents – do you know your local leisure centre is safe?

Olympic silver medallist and mum, Gail Emms, is encouraging parents to check that their local leisure centre facilities are part of Sport England’s quality scheme, Quest.

Quest is the UK-wide quality scheme which ensures that leisure centres meet a number of standards including health and safety, child protection, lifeguarding and cleanliness of pool water. Similar to Ofsted for schools, Quest rates leisure centres and health clubs according to their overall performance.

Gail said: “As a mum myself I know that safety is parents’ number one concern. With many of our kids heading down to their local swimming pool or summer camp at their nearby leisure centre we are asking parents to do the ‘Quest check’ which will give them peace of mind that their leisure centre is committed to safety and quality.”

Every leisure centre that undertakes Quest has to complete a rigorous one-day assessment across all areas of operation, carried out by an experienced leisure industry professional, all with senior manager positions, as well as receive a mystery visit. Centres striving for a more advanced Quest accreditation have to complete further assessments and receive two mystery visits, with one being from a person who works outside the leisure industry.

Quest’s operations director, Caroline Constantine, adds: “As well as being an assurance that your kids are in safe hands, Quest means that your local leisure centre is working hard to continually improve its offering and services.”
