Twinkle House – Making a difference to the lives of local Children and Young People with Disabilities and Additional Needs through their Charity work


Supported Sessions for Children & Young People with Disabilities and Additional Needs

Twinkle House Provides a FREE sensory-based personalised support service for children and young people 0-19 with Disabilities and Additional Needs living in West Lancashire and neighbouring areas.  We provide practical and emotional support to these children and their carers in order to empower them to bring about positive change in their lives thus improving their mental health and well-being.  Our children’s 1:1 sessions are supported by our qualified Integrated Practitioner (In Learning Disability Nursing and Social Work who is currently funded by The Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund). 

Twinkle House is currently applying for grants to fund new services that families have told us they need including Sleep support, Family Sensory sessions, Family and Carer Hydrotherapy sessions, Children’s relaxation classes and more social activities for families.

In order that Twinkle House can continue providing its free support services for children 0-19  we need to raise an income to help us pay for the overhead costs.

We do this by hiring out some of our rooms to people with Disabilities throughout the North West at a discounted cost.  Some rooms may also be utilised by the general public when they are not being used by those with Disabilities.  We are a not for profit organisation therefore all funds raised are used for charitable purposes.


Twinkle House  also provides Party Packages for Children and rooms are also available  for events, meetings, information days,  parent groups, family groups, classes, even Baby showers when they are not being used by people with Disabiilties.

Here are our  some of our fantastic Sensory Facilities

We have  a Dance Studio and Therapy Rooms on site too available for hire when not being used by people with Disabilities.

All rooms are fully accessible (parents and carers must carry out a risk assessment). Hoists are available in the Hydrotherapy Pool and Light Room.   Hoist users must bring their own hoist sling and must be accompanied by a person who is competently trained to use hoists.
