Building Bridges Between Young Individuals Dealing With Sensory Needs, Their Peers and the Community.
Our work focuses on building stronger more meaningful friendships between young people experiencing sensory issues and the social/ community barriers that can come with this.
We support these young people experiencing life through different sensory experiences and their peers to form deeper, more meaningful connections with each other. The young people we support may have a physical sensory need, such as a visual or hearing impairment, a neurological sensory need such as ADHD, ASD or HSP or an emotional sensory need such as PTSD or general anxiety.
We build on self confidence, self esteem and break down barriers that stem from negative stereotyping.
Sensing Friends has been running since April 2017.
Starting in January 2020, we are currently running a three year community friendship project, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. We run our sessions from Plot 22, in Hove.
The community friendship project includes;
The peer group workshops have the exciting theme of The Elements; Earth, Air, Fire and Water. This theme runs creatively through each of these events. Our emphasis is on building stronger friendships between the young participants.
