Supporte Sessions for Children & Young People with Disabilities in West Lancashire

Twinkle House Provides a FREE sensory-based personalised support service for children and young people with Disabilities and Additional Needs to help empower them to bring about positive change in their lives.

We provide practical and emotional support to these children and their carers in order to improve their quality of life.

(Children’s sessions are part grant  funded by The Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund, Lloyds Bank  Foundation and John Moores Foundation).

Twinkle House  also has various activity rooms for hire by our community:

Hydrotherapy Pool ~ Large Light  Sensory Room ~ Large Dark  Sensory room

available for hire by the hour for both adults or children and young people.

We also have a Cafe facility on site providing drinks and light snacks.

We now have  a Dance Studio and Therapy Rooms on site too

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.
