We have a pop up sensory room where we run sessions

Our popular sensory sessions have been running for over four years at our Huntington headquarters. Our pop up room offers a great range of equipment to explore the senses. Sessions are for both adults and children with disabilities, including sight loss, autism and learning disabilities.

The equipment in the sensory room offers a variety of sensory experiences, tactile, audio, visual and smell.

Whether relaxing with the light box, getting active with the beanbags, watching the light projections or exploring the tactile objects there is plenty to discover.

As well as our regular adult sensory sessions, which is where it all started we also offer a range of other sessions.

Enjoying active sensory Active sensory sessions
