The Space Centre

The SPACE Centre is the largest and most versatile multi-sensory environment in
the UK for anyone with special needs.
It provides a place where children and adults with physical, learning and
emotional difficulties can develop skills and enjoy experiences not usually
available to them.

Within one of our three sensory rooms individuals can be transported to a
whole series of virtual worlds and the ambience adjusted to suit the needs of
individuals or parties so that they are comfortable and relaxed. It is in this
way they are more likely to try different things and enjoy different experiences.
The flexible environment for families, carers, therapists and teachers:
• Allows freedom for clients to move in safety
• Provides a world of sensory stimulation and enables the assessment
of sensory abilities by presenting one stimulus at one time and excluding
unnecessary distractions.
• Builds confidence and motivation
• Gives wheelchair users the chance to be out of their wheelchairs and
experience different positions
• Enables life skills to be developed through structured and educational
programmes SPACE is available to anyone with support needs. It is used
regularly by those with development delay, cerebral palsy, dyspraxia,
autism, challenging behaviours, emotional difficulties and profound
multiple difficulties including brain injuries.
