Free Super Sunday and Holiday Clubs
We run regular clubs for families with disabled children which are lots of fun and completely free! Clubs take place once a month with activities designed for specific disabilities, plus clubs for any disability during the school holidays. Please note that all clubs are currently paused due to COVID-19.
Need an Extra Pair of Hands?
Days out with kids can be stressful at the best of times, but particularly so if one of your children is disabled. We offer a free, unique service called Extra Pair of Hands which can be booked up to two weeks before your visit. A trained member of the team will call to discuss your child’s likes, dislikes and any triggers, and the same person will then join you for two hours during your visit to support, help you all have fun and really tailor your Eureka! experience for you – that’s right – your very own extra pair of hands!
Our Extra Pair of Hands service is currently unavailable due to COVID-19.
Autism Friendly Award
Sensory conditions – Planning your visit
We know that many visitors with autism and other sensory conditions find it beneficial to prepare for their visit and have prior insight into the sensory input involved in a visit to Eureka!, that’s why we’ve created an online Sensory Guide. The Eureka! – a practical guide for parents, teachers and children to read before visiting.
Toilets and Changing Places
We have a Changing Places toilet available as well as all access toilets on both floors. You’re also welcome to use either of our First Aid rooms with adult-sized beds if required.
- Changing Places toilet on the Ground Floor
A changing facility with toilet, Robin tracking hoist with maximum load of 200 kg, height adjustable changing bed and washbasin, privacy screens and enough space for two carers and a wheelchair user.
- All-access toilets on both floors
Both left hand transfer space with vertical rails at the side of the toilet and basin, a changing mat, and low level light switches, hooks, taps and hand driers.
