The centre will have 9 separate play rooms/ areas – 2 sensory rooms, an indoor and 2 outdoor playgrounds, a music room, soft play room, a fully inclusive gym and a trampoline room as well as breakout rooms for those who need them. The equipment and set up of the rooms encourage play, exercise and a varied sensory experience for all abilities.
Each room has hoists and play/ exercise options for different abilities or disabilities. We have changing beds and hoists for toileting and are controlling numbers of attendees, depending on the sessions, to cater for different sensitivities and needs.

There will also be a cafe providing sandwiches, fruit, snacks and of course – a selection of our famous homemade cakes. We have a range of cold drinks alongside our brand new coffee machine, offering a variety of hot beverages. Somewhere you can relax and chat to others after your session.
Parents are responsible for all their children but we have members of staff in each room who are specialised in working with children and young people with disabilities who can give you a hand to access equipment and make the most of the centre.
