Sensory Room

Crowdfunding Appeal

We now have a link to our Crowdfunding Appeal for the Sensory Room. Please click on the link above or here and support our appeal. Every donation will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!


The Charity is proud to announce a fundraising campaign to update the ageing sensory equipment at Stour Connect (Sturminster Newton).


Adults with additional needs (learning/physical disabilities, autism or dementia) are often unable to access facilities providing much needed sensory integration and stimulation beyond the ages of 18 or 25 . This assumes their sensory needs are ‘cured’ at that age!


The Friends of Stour Connect believe there is an ongoing need throughout adulthood, that is not currently being met. We would also like to provide a service for those developing new conditions in later life, through accident or illness, who might benefit from a multi-sensory therapeutic space.


Some of the benefits of multi-sensory environments are :

  • Improved co – ordination and motor development

  • Promoting cognitive development by stimulating brain development

  • Enabling participants to explore their environment

  • Heightened awareness and improved alertness

  • Increased concentration

  • Focussed attention

  • Development or reactivation of senses – hearing, sight, smell, touch and taste


The re-provisioning of this sensory environment is a must, the current areas are outdated, and often not working.

Our target is £2800

Please support our campaign in any way that you can.

Many thanks - Friends of Stour Connect


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.
