Mobile sensory unit will provide families with additional needs a safe space at larger scale events. Aswell as a main unit just for fun

by Sky Hamilton Bing in St. Dennis, England, United Kingdom

Hello My name is Sky. I live in Cornwall I am married and I have young children two of which are under two and one of which has Autism and is currently non verbal.I have an FdA in Event Managment from Plymouth Universty and I currently work within the NHS mental health team. I am well aware of the challenges faced to families and those with additional needs and the limitations this can make on family life, I have always felt there is a demand for more services in Cornwall which are accessible to those who struggle to get out and about or find busy trips to play centers too much hard work this could be for a variety of reasons.

After having an awful experience at a "sensory santa" last year I decided its time to do something about it myself. This year to launch Reinbow sensory I would very much like to bring father Christmas out to those who find traditional grotto a no go for whatever reason that may be but after having a serious riding accident in the summer and breaking my neck my plans are a little further behind than anticipated and so I am here asking for your help to help with the financial demands of the project and make this dream come true for so many.

So what Exactly is Reinbow ? Reinbow Sensory is made up of mobile sensory unit currently being converted from a ricebox , these units use sensory toys and aids to assist in developmental delays ,improve and encourage fine motor skills and self soothing behaviors. Reinbow has an additional service of Equine assisted therapy our trained ponies will come out into the community to care homes or just to your garden to visit those who would benefit from the non ridden non verbal relationship which can be gained with these ponies for therapeutic reasons or just for recreation. Reinbow also aims to provide a main base unit which will be used as meeting place for groups and families to get together at a later date. Oh & by the way Reinbow sensory isn't just for those on the autism spectrum it is inclusive of everyone including those with dementia, mental health challenges and just for fun, baby sensory is very popular learning technique adopted by more and more every year.

Reinbow is currently a Ltd company although we would very much like to change to a community interest company an application has been submitted to companies house as I believe this is what we are. Your donation and support may be large or may seem small but to me and many families like mine it is everything.

Please follow reinbowsensory and  keep an eye out for our fundraising events , your support is invaluable.

Best wishes
