We have specialist sensory equipment and play toys for the young people to access at our sensory sessions.
This is a safe space for young people to express themselves, for parents to meet other parents and all the family to enjoy some quality time without the stares, comments and being judged.
we've all been there too!
In all of our sensory sessions, we offer free courses, trips out, book library, information, support, pamper sessions for parents, activities and much more!
(Sessions Varey in the summer holidays as we have social activities going on)
For young people aged 2-16, £5 for one child and £7 per family.
Siblings welcome too!
Here are what our families think about some of our groups
"Little treasures group in Darlington is lovely. Charlie and Kaitlin know my boys and treat them with such love and respect. It’s the one place I know my son can be himself and be totally welcomed"
"A lovely group full of caring and friendly people. Lots of different activities are always set up and it's not too busy nor too quiet. Everyone is so kind and not judgemental like other groups we've been too in the past. I'd highly recommend"
"It is rare to find a group that is fully able to welcome us as we are. We sat outside for many weeks while my son got used to the new place, and new people, and I was always included and made to feel welcome. A group where meltdowns are understood, and other parents quietly respect how each parent handles it, then offers solidarity and support once the intensity eases. This is a group with info, training and support available as much or as little as you need"
