The Toy House Urmston

Our History!

The Toy House was established in 1981 by the parents of disabled children.

At that time they found there were few resources suitable to meet the specific needs of their children. They worked hard raising funds to purchase items and set up what was known for many years as Delamere Toy and Tape Library. It has had many changes over the years but has been supporting the
local community since 1981. 

In September 2016 we became known as The Toy House. We plan to continue to support our community to ensure children and adults develop to their true potential. 

The Toy House is an independent charity working in partnership with families, schools, grandparents, childminders, groups working with disabled adults plus other charities and groups from our diverse community.

The Toy House is accessible for people using wheelchairs and there is a lift to access the upstairs Sensory Room and bathroom.

The Toy House offers a sanctuary for families, including those with disabled children; we offer a helping hand and provide access to specialist toys and equipment. 

Our aims are to: 

●Provide an all-inclusive, non-judgmental, welcoming environment which meets the needs of our visitors.
●Reduce the feelings of isolation in families.
●Offer a listening ear.
●Provide high quality resources to support learning and development.
●Provide an opportunity for our visitors to relax in our sensory room.
●Offer volunteering opportunities.
●Offer volunteering opportunities to disabled adults.
●Offer work experience opportunities to students who may need a little extra support.

'VIP' Mason McQueenie, was chosen to cut the ribbon as a ‘Thank You’ to his dad, Lee,
for doing the DIY to help create the room. 

Mason attends Delamere School and visits weekly with his class and he loves to relax in
the sensory room. The toy library is a charity that was established in 1981 by parents of
disabled children but now it is a facility that welcomes all members of the community.
