Lighting up lives for people with a learning disability

Posted 02/09/2020

The Camden Society has received a generous donation from a local business to create a new sensory room in the home of some of the people they support.

The Camden Society supports 130 adults with a learning disability to live independently at home and in their community. During the pandemic they have been supporting two people in Northampton with complex needs whose daily routines have been heavily impacted.

Their staff wanted to help restore some familiarity to their day by creating a music, gaming and sound sensory space that they could enjoy from home.

Ledridge Lighting, based in Leicester, were approached for help in creating this new room; but they decided to donate the lighting and install it for free to give back to the local community instead.


Matthew Sullivan, Community Support Leader at The Camden Society said,

“The current time with coronavirus has been difficult for us all, but particularly those who have a learning disability, so we wanted to create a room that they can really enjoy.

We would like to thank Ledridge Lighting for their kindness in donating this equipment to us and installing it for free.

It was a very kind gesture and as the people we support have specific support needs, this new sensory equipment will really make a big difference to their lives”.
