Project: Mobile Multi-Sensory Room
Grant Program: Community Grants
North Shore Disability Resource Centre created Canada’s first mobile multi-sensory environment, with the help of a grant from the West Vancouver Foundation. They built the multi-sensory environment on wheels with community in mind. It’s a health and wellness resource that can be used by children, young adults and the elderly in schools, hospitals and care facilities, first-responder communities, and so many more. Individuals of all ages who may have Autism, cognitive disabilities, dementia, depression/anxiety, or PTSD.
They started bringing the Multi-Sensory Van to the West Vancouver Seniors Centre and the West Vancouver Community Centre in October 2022. They expect that their numbers will grow with each week on-site.
