Many of the young visitors to the Children’s Unit at Royal Oldham Hospital have complex needs and are often battling with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. In order to improve the patient’s experience at a difficult time for both them and their families, the medical team would like to update their sensory room to provide a relaxing, calming and inviting environment. The project has been designed with the involvement of children and families visiting the hospital.

Sensory equipment, which includes lighting and colour effects, sound systems, bubble tubes, fidget toys, games and more, is invaluable for the wellbeing of children who are anxious and upset, and especially for those with learning disabilities and complex health needs.  The current sensory room is very popular but it has not been updated for the past twelve years, and much of the equipment is old and overused. The space needs new padding, lighting, tactile equipment and a seating area, which should last a further twelve years and benefit up to 9,000 patients visiting every year.

“The materials provided greatly help with the therapeutic process and engaging children, young people and their families in therapeutic work. The young people greatly appreciate having this equipment to use within their sessions. Many of the young people we see have a history of trauma including neglect and being able to access materials that they can use and enjoy is of great benefit and hopefully assists us to reinforce the messages of their worth as their self-concept is often very low.”
