What we do
The Soft Play Sensory Resource opened in 1995 and caters for the various requirements of Wirral’s special needs people of all ages. It is a vital community resource that has a huge impact on its users and their carers, by improving their overall quality of life. A number of local schools with special pupils also benefit from the facilities offered by the resource.
The resource is run and maintained by the Wednesday Special Needs Club (WSNC). It meets every Wednesday evening between 7 and 9 pm (during school term times) and caters for young people aged 10 upwards. We hope it provides our members with a few hours of fun and social chat in welcoming surroundings.
The facilities available include the soft play sensory resource, a spacious and a welcoming coffee bar with annexe room and a large hall. During the evening, the activities enjoyed include arts and crafts, table games, watching TV, play on the Xbox and football shoot-out.
The WSNC club, which has been running since 1993, is staffed and run by volunteer helpers and has no official funding.
The Hoylake 10k Fun Run and a Summer Fair are organised annually by the club as part of its fundraising activities to help with the upkeep of the resource.
