There's a treat in store for any visitors to the Autism Hub in Romford, now that we've refurbished our sensory room. Ever since the Hub opened in the LIberty Shopping Centre in 2015, we've had a sensory room available to anyone on the spectrum who needed a space to relax and calm down if needed.
A shopping centre, with all the bright lights, noise and various smells can be quite challenging for people on the autistic spectrum, so we've always been able to offer the sensory room as a quiet space for anyone who needed it. And we've been able to purchase some new items, all designed to help anyone who finds the shopping experience a little overwhelming.
The Autism Hub is situated in Laurie Walk in the LIberty Centre - if you follow the Calm Lane, it will take you straight to our door. Anyone can use the sensory room, just call in when you feel the need.
Our opening hours in the Autism Hub are as follows;
Tuesday 10am to 2pm
Wednesday 10am to 4pm
1st & 5th Thursday of the month 1pm to 5pm
2nd, 3rd & 4th Thursday of the month 3pm to 5pm (closed 5pm 7pm for groups)
