Twinkle House – Making a difference to the lives of Children and Young People with Disabilities and Additional Needs through their Charity work
TWINKLE HOUSE SENSORY CENTRE
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 has received a grant from The Big Lottery for £499,863 to enable us to continue our work and provide new low cost Family Time sessions over the next three years.
We still need to raise £50,000 per year to support the running costs of the service, please help by making a donation to the Charity through our Donate Page.

SENSORY FACILITIES TO HIRE BY THE HOUR FOR THE WHOLE COMMUNITY
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 or Additional Needs 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.
SENSORY ROOMS and SENSORY HYDROTHERAPY POOL
Rooms available for hire include:
- Sensory Activity Room (Light Room) with steps, slide, swings, ball pool, water bed, bubble tubes
- Sensory dark room (uv light)
- Small intimate relaxing sensory Room for 2 people or for small group of parents and babies
- Therapy Room for Practitioners or Therapists to hire
- Dance Studio for group activities or party use
Twinkle House also provides Party Packages for small groups 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. We also have a Cafe facility on site providing drinks and light snacks.
Here are our some pictures of our fantastic Sensory Facilities
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.
