Rosa Morison, our day service for adults with profound and complex learning and physical disabilities has added another string to their bow with news of the addition of a multi-sensory room.

In April 2016 they upgraded their hydro-therapy pool complete with mirror ball, projector, sound system and lighting equipment. In August 2016, the then-Mayor, Councillor David Longstaff, performed a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open a sensory garden.

So staff at Rosa Morison are delighted to share the news that they have secured funding for the long planned for multi-sensory room.

Like the beautiful gardens before it, the £5,800 multi-sensory room has been partially funded by the fundraising efforts of the charity Friends of Rosa Morison – to the tune of £2,580. The rest of the money will come from the centre’s own budget.

The multi-sensory room will be another beneficial addition for current service users as well as potential customers.

A specialist local company called OptiMusic will be managing the construction of the multi-sensory room over the next few weeks. The picture shows an example of another special room the company have completed.

We look forward to posting a update of the transformation to a multi-sensory room for Rosa Morison service users in a few weeks’ time!
