This winter’s issue of ‘Reaching Out’ comes to you from Bristol, where you’ll find our Sense Family Centre, Woodside. Our special Woodside issue features just a few of the children, families and staff members who are so grateful for all your support.

Meet Greta

Sense Children and Family Support Worker, Ellie is helping Greta and her mum and dad to learn British Sign Language so they can communicate with each other. Greta and her mum, Zoe, come to the Twiglets pre-school group at Woodside, where they love exploring tactile toys and games.  Read how Greta’s coming along with her signing – and how your support is helping her.

Catch up with Stella

Stella, who was the star of our 2016 Christmas Appeal, also loves coming to Woodside. Stella’s mum Jo describes Woodside as “a sensory overload of loveliness." As you read about how Stella’s continuing to grow and develop into a loving and expressive 11-year-old, we hope you’ll remember that it’s all made possible by your generosity.

Meet our Team!

This issue we caught up with Caitlin, a Sense Children and Family Support Worker, who’s based at Woodside and supports children and families in Bristol and Wales. She tells us about the difference your generosity makes. We hope you’ll enjoy hearing from her – and look forward to meeting other members of the team in future issues. 

Also in Reaching Out...

You can read about our Sense Sibling Weekend that took place last autumn and Teddy Sense’s nautical adventure on a Sense Family Day.

In the Supporters’ Corner, you can read messages sent by wonderful Sense supporters, and find out how you can win some fabulous prizes in the Sense New Year Raffle!

We hope you enjoy reading your latest issue of ‘Reaching Out’. It’s always wonderful to see the progress children who are deafblind or who have complex disabilities can make, thanks to the support you provide.

We hope you enjoy reading about the amazing difference your support makes to children who are deafblind. Thank you for your support.
