Soul Sensory is an exciting community interest company that provides a ‘safe space’ , multi sensory experience tent that can be accessed by all ages and abilities but most importantly offers lots of interactive fun!
They provide a range of activities including a tactile wall, brick building, sand area, bubble making and traditional games to stimulate and occupy inquisitive minds but also to encourage relaxation and calm.
