To celebrate Children’s Hospice week we are delighted to announce the opening of a new sensory room at Claire House, funded by the Williams Family Foundation.

Just over £10,000 has transformed their sensory space from being tired, out of date and underused into one of the most popular places to spend time at Claire House.  The new multi-sensory room has been specially adapted with the use of sound, vibration, lights, bubbles, interactive games and comfortable padded surroundings.

The project included relaying the floor and changing access to the room to enable more wheelchairs to enter the area at the same time.  A change in design of the room has made it much more useful for group activities and has created a fun environment, as well as a place to chill out.


Marvan Awang, Play Specialist at Claire House said, “The changes to the multi-sensory room have truly brought the room back to life.  Children are able to relax and spend time our of their wheelchairs in a stimulating, comfortable environment.  The new layout of the room has allowed us to run more group sessions which the children really enjoy.”

Claire House Children’s Hospice is an incredible place that offers care, support and choice to families whose children aren’t expected to live to be adults.  The Play Therapists at Claire House are so passionate about spreading joy to the children and creating memories that will last a lifetime and we are very proud to have created a space where they can enjoy wonderful moments with the children.
