Background of Sensory People

SENSORY PEOPLE is a charity which was set up in 2015 by professionals who each had Special Needs experience and a passion for helping those who need extra support to undertake simple things in their daily lives that most of us take for granted.  The Board (see Who We Are) is now made up of Occupational Therapists and parent/grandparent representation. The following legal statement was made as part of the charitable registration process. It defines our (legal) purpose:

“The relief of need and the promotion of health for people suffering from mental and physical illness, learning disability or learning difficulties, their families, educators and carers, by the provision of support, advice, education, therapy, recreational and other activities or approaches designed to promote their independence and improve their conditions of life”

The charity’s initial priority is to provide people who need it with Sensory Integration (SI) Therapy/ SI based activities.
