A community multi-sensory space for all ages and abilities
WE ARE BACK
Update for re-opening 14th April 2021.
Following guidance from the government, we have put Covid-secure measures in place. We want to make sure that participants, parents, carers and our staff members are safe during the sessions so please read on:
o Our sessions will run as bookable time slots for private sensory sessions for single household or support bubbles only. This guidance will be reviewed and updated as soon as the government makes any changes.
o We will require anyone over the age of 12 to wear a face covering when entering the community centre and when moving around inside the building (except WHERE EXEMPT). After our sensory playworker has left the room, family groups or those in a bubble will be able to remove their face covering during a sensory session.
o We are going to run 45-minute sessions with 15-minute breaks between each session to make sure all our sensory equipment has been properly cleaned between use. You will be required to arrive on time for your sensory session (please do not arrive earlier than your booked time), and to leave the sensory room promptly, although you may use the toilet facilities before and after your session.
o We will no longer charge per person and will now be charging per session. We would prefer people to pay in advance online or by contactless card on the day. We are currently not accepting cash – this is not just because of the virus; going cashless helps us reduce our cash handling costs, so we hope you support our change to card payments. If you are unable to pay by card, please let us know when you make your booking and we can send you an invoice to pay by bank transfer.
o We will not be giving out paper receipts – if you pay on arrival please ask for an email receipt, and if you pay online you will automatically be sent a receipt.
o Hand sanitiser will be available at the session; we will ask everyone to use it before they enter the sensory room.
o When you arrive for your sensory session, our Sensory Play Worker will show you into the room and demonstrate how the equipment works if it is your first visit. Once you are comfortable in the sensory room our play worker will vacate and leave you to explore and have fun. If you require assistance during your session, just pop out to Reception where our play worker will be happy to help.
o Please let us know when booking the nature of any disabilities within the group, and if there are toys or equipment that you wish to be turned off or removed from the room, or if you have any allergies.
o If you use our portable hoist you must bring your own sling.
o If a staff member is in the room they will wear a face covering or protective visor.
o A parent or carer must remain in the room at all times and be responsible for children or vulnerable adults within their group.
o If you need access to our Changing Places facility (with hoist), please let a member of staff and we will give you access.
o Please bring a bottle of water to keep hydrated. Please don’t bring food into the sensory room, milk for babies is of course welcome. If you need a bottle heated up please ask.
Our staff and volunteers cannot wait to welcome you back. They will be doing all they can to ensure you have a good time, even with these new rules.
If you have booked a session but need to cancel please use the Contact form, giving at least 24 hours notice.
