There are approximately 52,000 people with complex disabilities living in Northern Ireland, with around 9,370 in Belfast, where our new hub will be located.

How will Sense Hub Belfast change lives?

Your gift will give people with complex disabilities, or who are deafblind, and their families, a place where they can get support, try new things and gain confidence.

Your gift will ensure people with complex disabilities have access to:

  • Sensory rooms, messy play, craft areas and outdoor play space with Sense support workers to guide and encourage.
  • Arts, sports, wellbeing and social activities and events, including collaborations with local charities and providers.
  • A new adult day centre offering regular activities and groups to help people make new connections, reducing loneliness.

Having a Sense Hub in Belfast will be such a positive expression of inclusion for disabled people about their place in life and in our community.”

Will you help us take our exciting plans from paper to reality?

We have an ambition to raise £2million to make Sense Hub Belfast a reality. This will enable us to deliver a hub that’s finished to the highest standard, with sensory toys, accessible technology and bespoke, tactile furniture, and ensure it’s ongoing running costs in the future

Sense is Northern Ireland’s best kept secret. Not enough people know about the work that they do, but Sense Hub Belfast will change that
