How Sense helps children in their journey to adulthood

At Sense, we love to encourage young people to socialise, make positive and informed life choices, and support them on their transition from childhood to adult life. We support families at transition meetings, annual reviews, care-plan reviews, and at any other meeting where a family requires support.

Being Me! (A supported journey to adulthood) is a lottery-funded project that supports young people aged 14-25, with sensory impairment and complex communication needs on their journey into adult life. The project covers South East Wales and Cardiff areas, and is in its final year of the five-year project.

In addition, we hold a wide range of activities to help young people learn life skills, as well as helping them to build confidence and independence.

The project has supported 64 families and young people to date and we plan on helping out many more in the future.

Activities range from sensory play and storytelling, to cooking meals and driving a car! It’s a great atmosphere to make new friends, develop social skills and learn how to be independent.
