Supporting Young People, who have sensory needs, with overall emotional wellbeing, self confidence, making friends and feeling included in the world around them.
Sensing Friends is a non for profit community organisation in Sussex that supports young people emotionally who are dealing with sensory needs. This might be a visual, hearing or a psychological need. We use nature and creativity as a powerful facilitator to help address these needs.
Part of our work involves bringing young people together with all sensory experiences, to come and share and learn from each other. We offer these young people a chance to come and understand each other and the rich diversity of life we can offer with our differences. When this is felt then it is often possible to truly see our differences as Ok. From this feeling and acknowledgment it’s possible for each of us to celebrate our differences rather than fear them.
