The Sensory Room, is a new service located in Bude, North Cornwall.

We welcome service users of all capabilities, full wheelchair access and disabled amenities are offered at the Sensory Room.
There are many uses for a Sensory Room, people with disabilities and learning difficulties can enjoy the relaxing lights and colour changing settings. Older people with dementia can also enjoy the relaxation but also through aromatherapy and stimulating images, some clients can find this beneficial.
Sensory equipment can help develop key life skills including vocalization, gross motor skills, colour recognition and tracking.
The Sensory Room fosters an atmosphere of relaxation. Relaxation is good for children’s emotional health; it gives them a chance to explore their feelings and to become interested in their environment.
This calming environment is a place for parents/carers to bond with their children, providing a restful and peaceful experience in today’s busy and sometimes stressful lifestyles.
A facility such as this has many benefits for children with special needs as it creates a stimulating and yet calming atmosphere and among other things can help to improve hand and eye co-ordination and develop language skills. The overactive child can be calmed, the inactive become interested.
All young children can benefit from using a sensory room to develop fundamental sensory skills needed in later life. Sensory rooms are particularly useful for children with sight or hearing problems and have been proven to be extremely valuable to children with autism.
