The impact of sensory play

Our Sensory Play Practitioner, Marius, works in a dedicated sensory play room and by a patient’s bedside to encourage interaction and engagement with the world around them and feel more at ease in their current surrounding. With ceiling mobiles, music, bubble tubes, tactile toys and fibre optic lights, children can use this safe environment as an outlet for their feelings. This sensory play programme costs £25,000 a year to run. But the difference it makes is invaluable.

We are giving 25 businesses the chance to be a part of Play 4 All, which means you will be able to help give a child with additional needs, an opportunity to express themselves in a safe, adapted environment. Every day, our Sensory Play Practitioner brings relief and rehabilitation into the challenging lives of these young patients and you are ensuring that this vital programme continues over the next year.
