Our Mission

I cannot express just how essential The Sensory Shack is for our community.

With our mental health services and our social services under tremendous pressure many children and teenagers and adults are being left to wait for any kind of intervention as resources are limited.

Left until breaking point this puts even more pressure on services.

Leaving traumatised individuals both children and adults leads to anti-social behaviour, self-harm, substance abuse, lack of education, knife crime, violence and criminal activity.

They suffer further mental health issues, social exclusion and isolation.

With 40% of children in care ending up homeless or in prison we need to act to stop this deadly cycle.

We will give back to the local community to support training, therapy, healthy relationships and learning.

We will provide a base at The Sensory Shack to create balance and safety for our service users.

We will keep pricing low and give free sessions for the most in need.

We what to protect family units and reconnect carers.

We will empower people and give them the tools to help their loved ones.

From 0-100 from ADHD to dementia we will be open to all in need.
