Thomley provides a place for disabled people to come and play, take part in leisure activities and learn relationship and life skills. We help more than 11,000 disabled people each year (ranging in age from babies to pensioners) with a focus on children and young people.
Providing a safe environment for disabled people Thomley has outside and inside facilities. Outside there is specialised playground equipment that has been designed for the needs of our visitors and includes a covered sandpit; adapted swings and zip wire; wheelchair-friendly play fort and roundabout; and a one-kilometre cycle track with a good selection of bicycles, tricycles and go-karts. Inside there’s sensory room’s, art room, play rooms, imagination room, construction room, soft play, as well as a games room, teenage den and fully accessible ‘changing places’ toilets. Each day is structured around specific groups and themes, during which Thomley offer specialised programming for pre-school children, teenagers, adults, families, schools, respite groups or the wider community when any family (with or without disabilities) can join us.
