Location

Situation

We currently have no useable, indoor space large enough for the young people to take part in group activities such wheelchair sport and drama and performance. Our current school hall, built in the 1950’s, is now showing its age and is no longer accessible to our increasingly complex and wheelchair-dependent children and young people. We want a space where the whole community can come together to celebrate their achievements, stage productions in front of their friends & take part in team sport.

Solution

The Dream Centre will give young people with complex disabilities a modern and accessible space with a large indoor sports court where they can participate in wheelchair sports, whatever the weather. A raised stage for drama and performance, a built in trampoline for re-bound therapy and a 4D experience zone where they can virtually travel around the world while staying in the safety of our site. Most of our young people will never be able fly, and so we will be bringing the world to them.
