The Tim Lamb Centre

The Tim Lamb Centre offers specialist activity and leisure facilities for disabled children/ young people and their families.  Our Centre is open to families with a child/ young person at any stage of their diagnostic journey and whatever their additional needs are.  
Our facilities include a soft play area with adjoining cafe, a well equipped sensory room, large multi-purpose hall with indoor trampolines, a toddler playroom, teenage/ games room and a computer suite.  We also have a large fully enclosed outdoor playground, (with high fencing) which includes a range of inclusive play and sensory equipment.
The building is fully wheelchair accessible and we have a disabled toilet, which includes a full size changing bed and ceiling hoist facility.
We are open 7 days a week*.  Our opening times vary between school term-time and holidays, so please double check before you visit if you are unsure.
*Please be aware we are closed between Christmas & New Year; Easter Bank Holiday Weekend and all Bank Holiday Mondays.  We are also closed the first week in September for our annual deep clean/ maintenance week.  Any other ad-hock dates will be published on our social media sites and in our news section within this website.
