Our ‘Why?’

We have a profound impact on the lives of hundreds of people across the region by providing accessible activities to those who find everyday life challenging. The ‘Why?’ of Worcester Snoezelen is simple: we want to provide joy, fun and happiness through a dedicated multisensory environment and to support our visitors and their families. We believe what we do is essential, and the happiness of our thousands of visitors proves that it is incredibly valuable to individuals of all ages and abilities.

Our history

Worcester Snoezelen was founded as a charity in 1993 by Penny Brazier, who had the vision to transform a space into a multisensory leisure facility designed to provide a safe and creative environment for anyone in need of extra support and care. Over the years, the centre has grown and evolved to provide more services, care and positive environments for individuals of all ages with learning disabilities, additional needs, dementia, physical disabilities and more – alongside their friends and families.
