Sensory happiness for people with disabilities and additional needs

Worcester Snoezelen is a leisure therapy centre offering a range of person-centred multisensory activities that empower, bring joy, and help members make choices and communicate through alternative means.

Welcome to Worcester Snoezelen

We are so pleased you found us, and we are very excited to meet you. If you’re a parent or carer of someone with additional needs or a disability, you’re in the right place. Worcester Snoezelen is an extraordinary charity offering a range of services that are not available elsewhere in the local community. Our philosophy is to celebrate ability rather than disability, and potential rather than limitation.

What is Snoezelen?

The term ‘Snoezelen’ was first coined in the seventies by two Dutch therapists who used interactive ‘Snoezelen rooms’ to provide therapy for people with autism and other disabilities. At Worcester Snoezelen, we use the same client-centred approach to encourage people with a range of abilities to engage in sensory-stimulating activities through water, light, music and art.
