Evaluation and research for Sensory Nature Adventures and Play?


The Sensory Trust is currently conducting a piece of research and we would love you to be part of it!

As part of our SNAP project we are asking families to share their experience of the outdoors with us. We are looking at what makes a good outdoor experience and if there are any barriers that prevent families getting out.

We would appreciate you taking the time to answers these questions and letting us know your thoughts. The information we gather will be used in the project to help us create resources, advise outdoor settings and provide outdoor experiences for families.

Evaluation booklets

The research we are undertaking can help to make a real difference for families to access the wonderful outdoors, please help us to make your thoughts known! We really appreciate your time.

Update: We have been thrilled with the responses we have received back from participants of our survey and are so grateful for all the families that have taken time out to complete it. As we begin to sort through the data we are building up a strong picture of how families interact with their outdoor spaces and the kind of barriers that stop people getting outside. If you haven't already, please click on the link above to take part, it should only take you a few minutes and it will help us build up a valuable picture of life in the UK for families of children with disabilities.

Thank you!
