Welsh Paralympian unveils new facility for Swansea special needs youngsters

Team GB Paralympic javelin thrower, Nathan Stephens, officially unveiled a new sensory room for young people with disabilities and learning difficulties at Crug Glas School in Swansea.

Crug Glas School caters for 50 pupils aged 3-19 with profound, multiple or severe and complex learning difficulties. The new sensory room will improve the pupils’ sensory skills, interaction, communication and motivation and therefore enhance their social and learning experiences.

Crug Glas School is the tenth school to benefit from the partnership between BT and The Lord’s Taverners. Together the two organisations are investing £400,000 over three years to install 12 new multi-sensory areas that will enhance the lives of youngsters with disabilities and learning difficulties across the UK.

Anne Beynon, Director, BT Wales said: BT is proud to have supported the local community for many years and we’re thrilled to have been working with The Lord’s Taverners to help change the lives of children across the UK. We have a long history of supporting education projects and we’re delighted to be making a difference at Crug Glas School”.
