Focus Birmingham

Focus Sensory Garden

We want to build a sensory garden to provide an interactive, exciting area for our service users full of vibrant colours, scents and sounds. A sensory garden will enable us to improve the comfort, health and wellbeing of our users while also providing educational benefits and stimulating the senses.

Location

Situation

Focus day services work with adults from nineteen upwards affected by sight loss and other disabilities to deliver a stimulating programme of activities to ensure each individual can achieve their full potential. Our current garden is small and outdated and lacks any interactive elements for our service users and as a result of this our staff have to rely on trips off site in order to provide outdoor activities and sessions, which can sometimes be hindered by resource related barriers.

Solution

An on-site sensory garden will add considerable value to our service. Our service users will be able to enjoy nature and relax, reflect and socialise in a safe and peaceful environment. Plants, landscaping and other features are selected for their appeal to all five senses with the aim of offering a richer and more stimulating, therapeutic experience to a range of people with a range of different needs. Our staff will also be able to facilitate a number of sessions without travelling offsite.
