Daisy Chain’s Facilities
The facilities at Daisy Chain are catered to autistic needs and their complexities. They have a 5.5 acre site where the project originally began! The site has a farmhouse, gardens, allotments and a fish pond. Click here to learn more about Daisy Chain’s site.
Another fantastic facility at Daisy Chain is their Sensory Play Area. The play area is a safe, yet fun environment that kids can explore! The park has different sectors with different activities. For safety, each sector is contained in a gated and fenced space.
Have an interest in wildlife? Get stuck in at the Wetlands! Teach your kids about wildlife in a safe, yet welcoming and genuine environment. Likewise, Daisy Chain has a farm! The farm is a great experience for all the family. It has lots of animals, such as skunks and alpacas! The service believes that animals are a great stimulant for autistic children. Here you can stroke and hold different animal friends! Not only this but the charity also offers 1-1 animal therapy sessions.
Another great facility provided by Daisy Chain is their Day Centre. Fancy burning off some steam? Have a play in the soft play or chill out in the sensory room! Likewise, an IT Suite, Arts and Craft Room and meeting rooms are also available to use. Again, each space is autistic friendly and catered to meet diverse needs.
