We have made changes to our sensory library. Instead of being open each Friday, you can now order items to collect at your convenience.
The Sheffield sensory library is a place where you can borrow sensory equipment and trial the items at home, to find something to suit your needs. Using sensory equipment helps to engage and develop motor skills, encourage interaction and communication and can be a calming or stimulating influence.
There is a variety of resources available for loan, including fidgets, massagers, gym balls, CDs, disco balls and projectors. View our new sensory library catalog. CLICK HERE.
For a small deposit, you can loan items for up to 3 weeks with the deposit refunded when the goods are returned in good condition. The library also has an iPad where you can trial Apps, although this is not available to hire. The library provides a perfect opportunity to trial equipment at home before committing to buy from elsewhere.
Take a look at our catalogue on the link above to identify the items you would like to borrow and then contact our team with your item numbers to arrange a time / date where you can collect the items. We will inform you on booking of the deposit required for when collecting items. If you would like further information or to arrange to borrow an item please contact 01143840284 or email@example.com and ask for the sensory library.
The Sheffield Sensory Library was initially funded via Sheffield City Council and the Autism Innovation Fund.
