We will create a sensory environment to support tenants’ health and wellbeing. Designed and equipped to meet individual need, it will open up new experiences for tenants, be a safe space to relieve stress and fitness in a variety of ways, and provide a communal space to come together.

The people who run Rainbow Living are all volunteers and they work so hard to give opportunities to young adults with additional needs which wouldn’t otherwise be available to them. We can see the difference the charity's work makes to the lives of many others across our local community.
I love living in Rainbow House.
I was privileged to run the London Marathon for Rainbow Living; the charity's vision and dedication has been an inspiration to me and many others.
We know that Michael has such a happy, varied and full life where he lives at Rainbow House. That's so good for him, but it's such a good thing for us as well. One of the most important aspects of Michael living in the Rainbow house is the long term stability.
Sensory environments are enormously valuable to those with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, and sensory impairments, however there are very few such spaces available in and around Exeter, in particular for adults with learning difficulties and other special needs. Our tenants do not currently have access to a sensory environment, so we want to be able to provide a safe and calm space where they will be encouraged and supported to develop their health and wellbeing.
We will build a sensory room on-site at our Exeter Rainbow House; we will create a safe and calming space where tenants are supported to develop and engage their sensory skills, where they can relax and relieve stress and where they can develop their health, wellbeing and social skills, individually or as a group. Creating a room separate from the house itself will provide a further environment where tenants can be supported to build confidence, resilience and wellbeing long into the future.
