What happens next?

Supporting Information:

We will ask you to provide some documents to support your application.

Please look out for an e-mail from:

and check your spam and junk-mail folders.

This may take up to 4 weeks depending on the number of people applying.


We will review the information you send us to make sure that the pack is suitable for your child.

Once we have received your supporting documents your application will be assessed.

This is usually completed within 28 days but may take longer depending on demand.

Application Outcome

If your application is successful, we will send you a Donation Agreement.

You need to complete this and return it to us with your £20.00 contribution.

Once we have received your Donation Agreement and £20.00 we will order your pack.

Delivery of your pack should then take about 21 days.

If your application is unsuccessful we will send you a decline letter

We’re really keen to understand the difference Get Sensory Packs are making to children.

The information you provide to us as part of your application and once you have received your pack will help us to support more families in the future.

For this reason, we will ask you to complete a questionnaire three times within the next year to understand how things are and whether they have changed for you as a result of receiving support from us.

If you would like help, advice or support with any of the issues identified through this questionnaire then please contact:

Get Sensory Packs

Caudwell Children is excited to announce the launch of our Get Sensory Packs! We’ve listened to our families who told us that occupying their children, finding appropriate and safe toys and the money to provide their children with the equipment they would like is even more difficult than usual at the moment.

In response to this, we have created The Get Sensory Pack to provide affordable sensory equipment to support disabled children during this especially difficult time. These packs are available to children who have a confirmed disability or chronic illness.

Eligibility Criteria

• Families can apply for packs directly
• They must have a child with a confirmed disability between 0 – 18 years old
• Families must legally live in the UK
• Household income must be below £45,000 per year (before tax, excluding benefits)
• Families can apply for multiple sensory packs
• Caudwell Children will provide 80% of the cost of each pack (families will be asked to contribute 20% of the item cost, which is £20)
• We want to help as many people as possible but due to limited numbers of these amazing Get Sensory Packs we may have to prioritise applications and can’t guarantee everyone will get one. We do promise we will let you know as soon as possible if you have been successful, or if there is another way we can help you.

Families will also be asked to provide confirmation of their financial status and confirmation of their child’s diagnosis. Applying for a Get Sensory Pack will not prevent families from accessing other equipment or support from other Caudwell Children services.
If you are unsure if your child meets our eligibility criteria please feel free to get in touch.

About the Pack

Our Occupational Therapy and Support Team have selected key sensory items that offer children a broad range of sensory opportunities, therapeutic benefits and interactive experiences. The pack has been designed to support children living with a wide range of disabilities who are likely to benefit from sensory resources.

Each pack will include

Liquid Cell Timer, Scented Bubbles, BoBo Massager, Sissle Brush, 4 Ball Massager, Weighted Cushion, Spikey Domes, Space Blanket, Fibre Optic Lamp*

*Reasonable exchanges may be made dependent upon availability of items.

If your child is aged 0-3 years old they will receive a different Sensory Pack with age appropriate sensory items. Find out more. 

Get Sensory Packs Support

To support families further we will provide inspirational guides and demonstration videos for families to use with their children and Caudwell Children’s Get Sensory Pack. This will enable families to use their packs to the full potential. Telephone support, email and Live Online Chat will be available to enable families to access all of our range of services.
