Guidance for community owned and managed swimming pools

The Amateur Swimming Association and the Asset Transfer Unit are pleased to introduce the Guidance for community owned and managed swimming pools, which highlights the key considerations for community management and ownership of swimming pools. We are also delighted to present, in detailed case studies, the achievements of a range of community enterprise organisations which have successfully developed pool projects for the benefit of the organisation and the communities they serve.

Engagement and interest in asset based community development has been gathering pace for some years, however, practical instruction for less traditional assets such as swimming pools is scarce. We hope, therefore, that this guide, and the case studies and resources it includes, provides inspiration as well as useful signposting to relevant sources of advice and funding.
