Our current booking situation in relation to Covid-19:
We have been keeping under careful review the latest advice about Covid-19 (Coronavirus). Obviously it’s a really challenging time and many organisations will be reviewing whether to postpone or cancel events. We had hoped to remain open to booked private events, but the situation has clearly changed and our first priority at all times has to be the vulnerable people with complex disabilities who Sense support.


As such, with great sadness and many apologies, we are currently closing Sense TouchBase Pears to the public, and to external events. We are currently taking new/rescheduled bookings from 1st June onwards.

All profits from hire services go to support the vital work of Sense.

For everyone living with complex disabilities. For everyone who is deafblind. Sense is here to help people communicate and experience the world. In addition to practical support, we also offer information to families, and campaign for the rights of people with complex disabilities to take part in life.

We believe that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities, should be isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential. Find out more at www.sense.org.uk.
