Designed to cater not only to the needs of the young people in their foster families care but also to children throughout the community, the Sensory Room is now available for public use. 

Schools, local authorities, charities, businesses, and individuals alike are encouraged to take advantage of this innovative space, tailored to provide therapeutic experiences and support holistic development.

Shaun Burnett, Director of Mulberry Foster Care, expressed his enthusiasm for the new facilities, stating, “We are incredibly proud to open these spaces, which we believe will positively impact the lives of hundreds of young people in our community. Whether a child requires the calming environment of our Sensory Room or organisations seek a professional setting for their gatherings, Mulberry Foster Care is here to serve.”

In addition to opening its doors to the public, Mulberry Foster Care invites generous volunteers and sponsors to join in their mission. With several local businesses and individuals already expressing interest in sponsoring sessions for children, Mulberry Foster Care aims to further expand its reach and support network. Shaun Burnett urges, “If you know a child who could benefit from our Sensory Room or wish to contribute to our cause, please don’t hesitate to reach out.”
