    Sensory story experiences can be very effective in engaging children with learning difficulties and disabilities, encouraging discovery and interaction and providing a joyful shared experience.

  • Impact

    Impact

    With your support we can continue our journey towards making our venue and activities fully accessible.

    It is often hard for parents to find activities that suitably cater for their child's needs, and it is especially hard to find activities that can be enjoyed by all family members together. With your help we can enable more families with special access needs to enjoy our activities and share in the delight of children’s stories that belong to us all.

    Risk

    Seven Stories staff are fully prepared for the challenge ahead!

    Reporting

    Seven Stories will be updating on the Dragon Boat Challenge through our website and social media.

  • Background

    Location

    Seven Stories is Britain's home for children's books.

    We are based where this mission counts most - in the heart of some of the Northeast's most disadvantaged communities.

    Beneficiaries

    We are raising funds to benefit children with special educational needs and disabilities.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    Our exciting learning programme encourages many thousands of children, students, families and teachers every year to chose, enjoy and share books together.

    We are already on a journey towards making our venue and resources fully accessible, and with your support we can create more opportunities for children of all abilities to engage with our exhibitions and activities by creating a pool of dedicated sensory resources.
