Sense Loughborough

Sense Loughborough is opening in January 2023. We’ll be here for anyone needing support with hearing impairments, vision impairments, physical disability, autism and learning disabilities, no matter your age.

We walked through the door at Sense Family Centre Woodside not knowing what to expect and a short time after, we walked back out feeling part of the Sense family. It was so great and we were made to feel so welcome.”

Sense Loughborough is not just a place to spend your day – it’s a place where you can learn, grow in confidence and try new things.

You might already be aware of Sense College Loughborough, a specialist college helping young disabled people develop their independent living skills, access education and employment.

Sense Loughborough expands and refurbishes the college to also offer:

  • Arts, sport & wellbeing programmes
  • Play sessions for children under eights
  • Outreach play sessions in local children’s centres
  • Specialist support for children with multi-sensory impairments aged 0-25 years
  • Help finding work placements, jobs and getting additional support in the workplace
  • Day services to build life skills like cooking or using public transport
  • Opportunities for short breaks away from home

Specialist consultants, disabled artists, local charities, parents carers and disabled people will all be involved in creating Sense Loughborough.

Going to the sessions had such a positive impact on us as a family because we suddenly found ourselves with people who knew what we were going through.”
