Snowdrops Sensory Trail

We would like to put Braille and sound boards in and around our sanctuary, we have lots of educational information about the birds in the centre that sight deprived people could not read therefore making the information unavailable to them, we would also like to provide sensory items for our gardens

  • Need

    Need

    We are trying to make our Sanctuary completely disabled friendly from physical and mental disabilities to sight and sound impairments. We educate children about the need for conservation of british Owls and Birds of prey but would like to include sensory educational materials within the Sanctuary. We work with lots of children who have different needs on a weekly basis and the numbers are increasing year on year as we are able to accommodate more complex issues regarding educational materials

    Solution

    We would be able to offer specialist equipment to cater for the blind such as braille boards also touch and feel displays which are of an educational value. We would also like to add a hearing loop in our education centre and put sound boards which will narrate educational information to deaf children. Our whole sanctuary is wheelchair accessible and we have one of the only purpose built disability play areas in our region purchased by fundraising

    Aim 2

    Activities

    » Again we will hold fundraising events to raise the money


    Aim 3
