Access to Leisure and Learning (ATLL) is a scheme offering leisure and sporting activities at a discounted rate to people who are disabled, on low income, or in full-time education. Leisure services wanted to find out about levels of awareness and usage of ATLL as part of a review of the scheme.
Almost half of panel members (49%) indicated that they were aware of ATLL and 21% claimed at least one of the concessions, and were eligible to join the scheme. 16% of those who were eligible to join were already members of the scheme. Lack of awareness (39%) is the main reason why those who were eligible had not joined the scheme, not having anyone to go with, the second reason, given by 12%.
Leisure Services are increasing promotion of the scheme in Access to Leisure and Learning venues, including leisure centres, the Lighthouse and Poole Adult Learning. The scheme will also be advertised at council reception points, Job Centre Plus, colleges and also Bournemouth University to encourage more people to join.
