Sensory Room Appeal: Can you help Bring Light to the Beacon?


Sensory support to help 'bring light' to the Beacon

‘The Beacon’ is a 15-bed inpatient facility for young people experiencing severe mental health difficulties and eating disorders who need round-the clock care from our specialist team. We are raising funds to install a new sensory room to help with the young people's recovery journey.

The name ‘The Beacon’ was chosen by staff, current service-users and families, and not only echoes the local landmark, but symbolises hope for a brighter future.

Please take a look at our short video.

Bring Light To The Beacon Appeal

Creating a sensory environment can significantly support the wellbeing of our young people and help them to progress along their road to recovery. The small number of sensory items we currently use have had a positive impact on their treatment. So, we would like to extend this further and install a full sensory room and two portable sensory trollies.

This will help us to engage the young people in therapies, provides a calm and quiet space, allows for de-escalation when an episode may occur, inspire trust, communication, interaction and engagement.

Hear from Laura-Jane, who has worked with some of the young people at The Beacon: “It’s important for patients to have a space in hospital, where they can de-escalate and feel safe.”


With your support we are hoping to raise £25,000 to achieve this goal and #BringLightToTheBeacon.

So far we have received just over £20,300 in donations from the wonderful support of our local community, trusts and businesses. 

Can you help us reach our target? 

Every donation, small or large, is hugely appreciated.

Thank you!
