Grace is 9 years old, and is severely disabled with an undiagnosed genetic condition. Among many of her problems she has severe global developmental delay, she is double incontinent, has epilepsy, has microcephaly, is fed via a gastrostomy tube in her stomach, has no communication skills, visually impaired, kidney problems, and many more serious conditions, she is wheelchair bound and her life expectancy is currently unknown. But overall she is still a very happy smiley little girl.

We would like to create a sensory garden for her.

The purpose of the sensory garden is so that Grace has somewhere safe she can crawl around and explore. The area will have safe plants that won’t harm her if she chews them, windchimes and various other sensory treats for her to experience. It will have a special safe outdoor flooring so whilst crawling around she will not hurt herself. She hates to be stuck in her wheelchair and currently other than her specialist swing seat, which she only tolerates for about 20 minutes, the only place she can go outside is her wheelchair. This causes her to get very distressed and an unpleasant experience for everyone but most of all unpleasant for Grace.

This area will mean the difference between a child who can only spend a very short time outside being very miserable or a calm relaxed atmosphere that the whole family can enjoy together.

The groundwork is about to be started but we still need to raise funds for a safe fence that will also keep Grace within this safe area and keep it clean from the family pet dog and also need to buy a large shade/parasol to keep Grace cool and protected from the sun as she cannot cope if she is in direct sun for any length of time, then of course there are the sensory items, chimes etc.
