Charity celebrates 25th year with a Royal VisitPublished: Wednesday, 6th February 2019
HRH The Duke of Gloucester visited Worcester Snoezelen to commemorate the charity’s 25th Anniversary Year.
Worcester Snoezelen is a leisure therapy centre for people with learning disabilities and additional needs, located in Turnpike Close, on the University of Worcester St John’s campus. It has four sensory ‘Snoezelen’ rooms, a hydro-therapy pool, sensory garden, and specialist music and creative arts departments.
Jane Roberts, the Chief Executive Officer, who has worked with the charity for over 20 years, said
“It was a very great honour indeed to welcome the Duke of Gloucester and many other people to Worcester Snoezelen to commemorate our 25th anniversary year. Over the years Worcester Snoezelen has developed considerably from humble beginnings in a groundsman’s shed to the busy vibrant place that it is today. We are well known in the community, and currently welcome 350 people per week who travel from all over Worcestershire and beyond to use our facilities and engage with our staff. We believe we are unique in offering in one place so much for people with disabilities and additional needs.”
