The Aspire Leisure Centre (ALC), situated in North West London, was the first fully integrated community leisure facility in Europe for disabled and non-disabled people.

Currently, around a third of our members are disabled, which compares with a national average of 2-3% in other sports centres.  ALC proactively encourages disabled people to join and take part in all activities by subsidising their membership and activity costs and offer a fully Inclusive Fitness Initiative approved fitness studio.

ALC is approved by the Inclusive Fitness Initiative and has gained Quest (UK Quality Scheme for Sport and Leisure) registration as 'Excellent'.

ALC is connected to the Stanmore Spinal Unit and is regularly used for rehabilitation as well as general use. 

The good practice at the ALC inspired InstructAbility - a national project to train disabled people as fitness instructors.
