Jubilee Garden Disabled Children's Centre
A Resource Centre for Children with Disabilities and their Families
What is Jubilee Gardens?
Jubilee Gardens is a resource centre for children with disabilities and their families. The centre is the base for the Children with Disabilities Parent Hub. It is a community building where we hope you will feel welcome and able to use the services and facilities. For example, we have a play room, SNOEZELEN® Room information and gardens. We hope that the Centre will continue to develop with your help.
What services are there at the Centre?
Staff from the Integrated Service for Children with Additional Needs are based here. We work directly with families to look at your needs and identify appropriate support where needed.
What facilities are there?
If you are a child with a disability we want you and your family to make full use of the facilities. If you would like to use any of the Centre's rooms, please ask the staff for more details. They'll be happy to help.
The Snoezelen® Room is a magical place filled with special lights, soft soothing music, a variety of textures, mirrors and sounds. The floors and walls are cushioned and there are special chairs that you can sink into while the lights and sounds surround you.
A Snoezelen® Room is a place of relaxation, pleasure and pure enjoyment. Anyone who enters can decide to explore and enjoy the different sensory experiences in their own way and in their own time.
Some of the items you will find in the room include:
Bubble tubes, a soft slide and steps, a ball pool, fibre optics, a visual projector, soft play equipment, a musical vibration chair and lots more to stimulate a person's senses.
Family room/play room:
Families can use this room to meet other families and children with disabilities enabling the whole family to relax and enjoy the facilities. There is easy access to toys, books, tv/video, pc/games consoles and the Snoezelen® room as well as outdoor play areas. There are also kitchen facilities, disabled toilets and shower room/changing facilities.
The toy selection enhances motor, social, sensory, cognitive and imaginative skills as well as language skills. To achieve this our collection includes: role playing games, building blocks, musical instruments, puzzles, puppets, arts and crafts, rattles, children's books and much more.
The large conference room can be booked for support group meetings or professional meetings. There are facilities to make coffee and tea and prepare buffets. Equipment such as an overhead projector is available.
