Clem Jones Centre is pleased to announce the installation of a Mobility Hoist to compliment their existing pool access ramp at the Trevor Bishop indoor pool facility. This has been installed to assist patrons with limited mobility accessing the pool.

As the pool caters for many age groups it has been decided the Mobility hoist will be locked away when not in use. This is to avoid children playing with the electronic controls of the hoist when the hoist is on the pool deck.

Patrons requiring the hoist should contact the Learn To Swim reception desk on 3324 9391 prior their arrival at the pool and request the hoist be available when the patrons arrive at the Carina complex.

Carers will have to assist Clem Jones staff when moving clients into and out of the pool.

Thank you to the generosity of Bill and Geraldine Simpson, The Rotary Club of Wynnum and Manly, Christine Woodward and The Rotary Club of Carindale for enabling this to happen.  It will be officially commissioned by Lord Mayor Graham Quirk on 9th August 2015.


“Following a motor cycle accident in early 2009, I sustained a spinal cord injury which resulted in me being diagnosed as a T12 incomplete paraplegic, and I was advised that it was unlikely that I would never walk again.


In 2010 I started attending the Trevor Bishop Indoor Pool at the Clem Jones Centre. Initially I accessed the premises in my wheelchair and rolled into the pool in the water wheelchair. Many sessions later and my mobility has improved greatly and I am now walking short distances unaided. I can be found here around 7.30am most mornings Monday through Fridays, walking up to 2kms most days.


I have found the management and staff at the Clem Jones Centre to be very supportive in assisting me achieve my rehabilitation goals. The Centre is a great place to visit with everyone very friendly, staff and patrons included.
