TouchBase Pears is an ambitious venture, reflecting our mission at Sense to make sure that no one, no matter how complex their communication needs, is isolated, left out or unable to fulfil their potential.

We are indebted to the many individuals, organisations and trusts who have, through their generosity, enabled TouchBase Pears to be built. But we have a way to go before we can equip and resource the centre to meet the individual needs of everyone who will use it.
