At Sense Scotland, we focus on identifying your strengths and how they can be built on.

Our experienced staff will work with you and your family to find out how best to support you to meet your needs.

Most of our support for children and young people up to 16 years old is in the West of Scotland, but we'd be happy to talk to you about what you need, wherever you live.

TouchBase, Glasgow

TouchBase is our purpose built Glasgow resource, is an exciting and welcoming space for school aged children with communication support needs to develop their skills, take on new challenges and make friends at the same time.

Facilities

  • Visual cues, colour contrasting features and tactile markers enable everyone to access the centre with confidence while maintaining independence.
  • You can take part in creative session or play games with friends in one of our large communal spaces. We offer sensory and quiet rooms for you to explore cause and effect or simply relax.
  • Talk to us about the benefits of rebound therapy and how it might be beneficial to you. Or enter the digital world on the touchscreen computer in our Cyberbase computer area.
  • If TouchBase doesn't meet your requirements or locality, we might still be able to support you in your own community or home, wherever you live and whatever your needs.
  • The public courtyard cafĂ© is a great open space to enjoy your lunch together with others.

Create your own programme

You can access a range of creative, educational and social activities, both in TouchBase and in the community and you can do this as part of a group or one-to-one with the support of our specialist staff.

The centre has its own dedicated visual art, drama, music and woodcraft spaces with sessions tailored to your needs by our trained art tutors. Why not ask about our Brownies and Scouts group?

We also provide support to access recreational activities like swimming, indoor soft play, climbing and so much more.
