About Tailor Leisure Co
We all deserve to take care of our mental and physical health. Exercise, rest and relaxation are essential to our wellbeing.
But many people with physical disabilities are excluded from health and leisure activities due to their physical needs.
That’s why we founded the Tailored Leisure Company. To provide people with physical disabilities truly accessible opportunities to get fit, feel great and unwind.
Unlocking leisure for people with physical disabilities
Tailored Leisure Co provides a leisure services for people with physical limitations: from our luxury short breaks for families with a disabled loved one, to at-home exercise tailored to different ability levels.
We are run by people with disabilities, for people with disabilities. So an understanding of the challenges facing people with disabilities – and passion for overcoming them – is at the heart of everything we do.
We know from research and personal experience that current leisure provision often fails to accommodate the needs of people with physical disabilities.
Our bespoke holiday retreat, swim gym and seated exercise programme will change that, making leisure truly accessible.
- Private venues dedicated to people with disabilities
- Outstanding facilities catering for all levels of mobility and independent movement
- Support volunteers to assist family members and carers
- Online classes for exercise at home
Founded in 2019 by Tara Johnson, TLC is based on research and feedback from people with disabilities.It was Tara’s work as Engagement Officer for Healthwatch South Tyneside that inspired her to start the business.
Her research uncovered heartbreaking insights into the impact of limited leisure opportunities for people with disabilities. From a lack of suitable changing facilities and access equipment, to anxiety about intrusive behaviour from other users, accessing leisure is inherently difficult for people with physical disabilities.
