Sensory-inclusive experience at Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre

Visitors to the Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre with a sensory issue can have a positive experience thanks to a range of initiatives that promote inclusivity.

Sensitivities or challenges with sensory regulation can be experienced by one in six people, including those with autism, dementia, post-traumatic stress disorder and other similar conditions.

The centre has partnered with leading non-profit organisation KultureCity to make the centre and all of its programs and events sensory-inclusive. KultureCity has helped to create over 1,000 sensory-inclusive venues in six countries.

One of the major barriers for these individuals is over stimulation and sensitivity to noise they may encounter in a venue such as the Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre.

A sensory room equipped with sensory bags, noise-cancelling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads will be available to guests who may feel overwhelmed.

With its new certification, the centre is now better prepared to assist guests with sensory sensitivities in having the most comfortable and accommodating experience possible.

Before coming to the venue, you can download the free KultureCity app on Google Play or Apple Store where you can view what sensory features are available and where you can access them.

The app also features a social story which will provide a preview of what to expect while enjoying the facilities.
