What is Sensory Nature Adventures and Play?

SNAP is a Sensory Trust project working with children with disabilities and their families to create sensory, nature-based adventures such as stories, games and creative activities. These will be designed to help children with disabilities to build confidence and improve communication and social skills in their quest to explore the outdoor world. We will be encouraging families to play and explore together in a series of organised activity days as well as using our resources at home.

Families needed for Cornwall case study Sept - April

As part of the next phase of SNAP we are looking for some families to take part in a case study. This would involve your family trialling some of our resources and making some visits to different places near to where you live. You would then feedback to us on your experiences. All resources and any entry fees will be covered by SNAP.
