Update on the work on site:

Phase 1 Remodelling Work Work was completed at the beginning of July with a new much improved Reception area with automated doors, Specialist Resource Library and new small sensory room that has been fully fitted out.  Our many thanks to everyone who supported The Sparkle Appeal to help raise funds that were contributed to this work along with grant funds from BBC Children in Need, thank you all so much, what a difference you have all made :)

PHASE 2 Remodelling Work Phase 2 work has now started on site with thanks to a funding grant provided by The Wolfson Foundation.  The work includes a new medium sized interactive Sensory Room, 2 Therapy rooms and a Group studio that will be a multi-functional room for group work and social activities.   The work starts on August 7th and we expect it to continue for 2-3 weeks.

Thank you all so much for helping Twinkle House GROW Best Wishes, the Team at Twinkle House
