hallam road sure start centre, manchester


The new sure start centre is the district centre for the delivery of help and support to children with disabilities and their Families.

Five new areas were identified to meet the needs of this group and aid the integration of these children with their peers. These were requested in the original brief and included.

A resource area with storage to store and display equipment and information for parent and partners in the wider area.

A hygiene area for the use of all families who use the centre.

A flexible assessment room that agencies can carry out tests in an atmosphere that removes as many distractions as possible. This area needs to be flexible so it could be changed to meet individual children’s needs.

An area for families to meet, attend training and is large enough for physiotherapy to be carried out.

A sensory room to be used by the families that use the centre.
