Our facilities are available to The Milestone School and SAND Academy pupils together with children and adults with disabilities throughout Gloucestershire.

Families are also welcome to use our facilities, where they can enjoy various activities with their able bodied and disabled children in the hydrotherapy pool, soft-play and discovery areas.

We work closely with clinicians, care professionals, the NHS and local authorities to offer our facilities to the wider community.

Cader Idris Mountain Race

Ras y Gader, the Cader Idris mountain race, one of the toughest fell races in Wales, and viewed by many as a classic "must do" race. The event starts and finishes in the market town of Dolgellau, at sea level, and climbs almost 3000ft to the summit of Pen y Gader itself. One of the real challenges of the race is the constantly changing terrain, switching from steep metalled roads to flat tracks behind Gwernan lake, pitched steps up the Pony Path, and picking your way among the boulder fields on the final ascent........and then you've got to do it all in reverse!

Molly's Blog

Welcome to my blog - To all you explorers!  I first found out about the Chamwell Centre Charity as I was looking for hydrotherapy facilities in the area. After more research I really admire what they offer to young children and adults with disabilities and learning difficulties.
