The key purpose is to provide therapeutic support for children and young people (3 +). Play and creative arts therapy can help children to gain a better understanding of their emotions and feelings. It can help work through traumatic events, divorce, bullying, anxiety to name a few. I have a toolkit I use including art, clay, sand, puppets and music. A minimum of 12 sessions are recommended, though this depends on the level of need. Group sessions are available too.
Sense is a national disability charity that supports people with complex communication needs to be understood, connected and valued. We began, and continue, to support people who are deafblind. Today, we also support a wide range of people with complex communication needs.
We are here for every person who faces communication barriers in a world that relies on being able to see and hear well to be connected.
Our flexible and personalised services empower people to communicate and express themselves – be it through speech or sign, touch or movement, gesture or sound, art or dance. Together, we connect differently and campaign passionately for the right to lead connected and fulfilled lives.
We support children, young people and adults in their home, in the community and at our centres, in their education and transition to adulthood and through our holidays, arts, sport and wellbeing programmes. Also, we offer practical help and support to families and carers, including information, advice, short breaks and family events.
Our centres offer a place for disabled people with complex communication needs to build connections by developing communication skills and independence, meeting other people, being creative with arts and crafts and taking part in sport and exercise – all supported by skilled, specialist staff.
On a Sense Holiday or Sense Short Break, you’re in charge of the fun.
Whether you join one of our weekly activity groups or come away with us on a week away, you’ll get to choose what you do, make new friends and try things that you might not have thought possible.
As a parent, relative or carer, you can relax and enjoy a break from your caring responsibilities, knowing that your loved one is safe and having an amazing time.
Sibs exists to support people who grow up with or have grown up with a disabled brother or sister. It is the only UK charity representing the needs of over half a million young siblings and over one and a half million adult siblings.
Siblings have a lifelong need for information, they often experience social and emotional isolation, and have to cope with difficult situations. They also want to have positive relationships with their disabled brothers and sisters and to be able to choose the role they play in future care and support.
Our Vision - The long-term wider change we’re aiming for:
Children and young people achieve better outcomes because their parents will have been able successfully to navigate the SEND system. Additionally, those working with such children can access good quality information and improve their ability and communication skills when working with families.
Special Needs Jungle creates easy to understand resources, articles and information for parents and carers of children with special needs, disabilities and health conditions to better enable them to navigate the special needs system. We aim to inform, educate and empower families to self-advocate confidently, so their children get the help they need to live the best life they can.
We have a clear plan for children and young people in settings and schools so that we can identify early SEND needs and provide support through a process of good planning and reviewing. To this end we have produced two Graduated Response documents which outline and provide a clear message about responsibilities for early identification of need and what can be done to ensure plans are in place to support children and pupils with additional needs.
The Speech and Language Therapy team provides assessment and therapy for communication and swallowing difficulties in adults, both inpatients and outpatients.

We are based on the ground floor of Beeden House, reception C, at Bedford Hospital and have two treatment rooms for individual therapy and a group therapy room. All rooms are wheelchair accessible.
