“Quest is much more than a tick-box exercise; it is an ongoing programme to improve this fantastic facility for both staff and customers, and a great way to demonstrate the centre’s ongoing achievements.”

“Quest is the leisure industry’s go-to scheme for quality assurance and the assessment also focused on the leisure centre’s recovery from the pandemic and its ongoing Covid-19 security measures.”
