Transforming children’s experiences of hospital through play, thanks to donations

04.04.16 Categories: How donations help,

Thanks to your support, young patients at Evelina London now have a mobile multi-sensory unit. This fantastic piece of kit can be wheeled to children’s beds when they’re not able to leave them to provide a more stimulating environment.

The unit can be used by any child, but it is specially designed for those with special needs.

The unit is brightly lit with constantly changing colours, reflected by mirrors onto the surrounding walls. Children can explore its various elements of different shapes and textures, or become mesmerised by glowing bubbles whizzing around in front of their eyes. 

The idea is to transform what might be stressful or boring surroundings into a relaxing, empowering environment.
