Smile Through Sport
For everyone living with complex disabilities. For everyone who is deafblind. Sense is here to help people communicate and experience the world. We believe that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities, should be isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential. Our experts offer personalised support through our centres, holidays and short breaks, or in people’s own homes. We are here for everyone who needs us, for as long as they need us – providing early intervention for children, helping young people access education, and supporting the transition into adulthood and beyond. 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 currently provide short breaks services in West Yorkshire for Children with additional needs. We are also providing a summer holiday club for 2 weeks in August.
