Our work with the Eden Project
Sensory Trust works closely with the Eden Project, and from the earliest days we've been helping make Eden as accessible and engaging for all staff and visitors. As a result, Eden has earned a reputation for its positive approach to accessibility and this is reflected in the diversity of people who choose to visit.
Our work has included access reviews, diversity awareness training, inclusive design advice, accessible information, sensory design and creative community engagement. We regularly run conferences too and Eden is an unbeatable venue for lively debates on issues such as regeneration, social and environmental sustainability, inclusion, play, and education.
