Bracknell Sensory Toy Library

Giving the gift of play.

 

Who are we?

We are a Bracknell-based non-profit organisation providing a variety of sensory toys and theraputic items for children with special educational needs and sensory issues.

We offer monthly loans of these items to family either via collection at in-person events (although these have been on hold throughout the Covid-19 pandemic) or via delivery.

These items are often expensive or take up significant space, and finding the right fit for each individual child can be quite a struggle!

If you or someone you know have children with sensory needs that could benefit from any of these items, please email us at bracknellsensorytoylibrary@gmail.com and we will always be delighted to help!

 

Become a Member

Anyone can borrow from us if they:

  • Have a child under the age of 18 who they believe has additional needs (no diagnosis necessary), or the child they have responsibility for has ever been in care.

  • Live in Bracknell Forest (or the surrounding areas if they are able to commit to collect and return toys themselves to/from Bracknell)

  • Some organisations (that work with children with SEN) are able to borrow from us but families get first priority.

To become a member email bracknellsensorytoylibrary@gmail.com with your full name, phone number, address and age of your child. We will send you a membership card and out latest terms and conditions. All details are kept safe and secure and will not be shared.
