The Forget-Me-Not Room is a purpose built room for children and young people to spend time when they have reached the end of their lives. This room has a unique atmosphere that allows families to stay in an adjoining room with their children for as long as they need, to say their goodbyes in their own time.
Our purpose-built sensory room is a multi-functional room. It can provide a relaxing and calming atmosphere, as well as a stimulating and interactive space for children and young people to enjoy.
