Harvey Sandford, Lloyds Bank Relationship Manager officially opened Jaffray Care’s new sensory room on the 10th March 2017. The team at Lloyds Bank PLC were one of the many business partners, friends, staff and neighbours of Jaffray Care who helped raise £20,000 to build the new room.

The event was attended by local MP Jack Dromey, John Phillips M.B.E. from the Institute of Directors and Gary Birch from the Chamber of Commerce and along with many relatives, neighbours and friends of Jaffray Care.

Harvey Sandford cuts the ribbon to declare the sensory room officially open.

Our state-of-the-art facility, believed to be one of the largest of its kind in Birmingham features all the latest technology and equipment to benefit our Service Users. Adults and Children with special educational needs or disabilities will be able to take advantage of the room from the wider community too.

The facility has been designed to stimulate all the senses, including touch, sound, vision, movement and even smell to enhance user’s awareness of their environment.

It is completely interactive so users can relax or interact and control all the elements making it a unique experience each time they visit. As well as bubble tubes, the room includes a vibration water bed and projectors, moving light scanners and colour changing LED’s.
