SEND toy and resource library

What is the SEND toy and resource library?

Our SEND toy and resource library is available for families to borrow and try out toys to enhance at-home provision and support development.

We know how expensive specialist equipment can be, especially when your child’s development is progressing and their interests and skills are changing rapidly! Our toy library allows for parents and carers to borrow unlimited equipment throughout the year (a maximum of 3 items at a time per person) for a one-off payment of £25. We also offer a membership package for professionals to borrow equipment to use in setting (£50 a year, to borrow unlimited equipment for 12 months, a maximum of 4 items at a time).

We have over 130 toys available to borrow! Here’s a selection of the types of toys you can find:


How our toy library works

To use our toy library, you’ll need to:

  1. register as member online,
  2. agree to our terms and conditions, and
  3. pay a yearly subscription fee (£25 for parents and carers, £50 for professionals).

When you’ve registered, you can sign in and view our online catalogue to request and borrow our available toys.

We do not offer item delivery. Items you order must be collected from The Vinery Centre during our opening hours.

Parents can rent a maximum of 3 toys at a time, each for a period of up to 4 weeks.

Professionals can rent up to 4 toys at a time, for a period of a school half term.

Ordering and collecting your toys

Select a rental start and rental end date for your items. Items can be returned before your rental end date, but item renewal is subject to availability.

Add your items to your basket, continue shopping or go to the checkout.

At the checkout, fill in your details and place your order.

A member of the team will assemble your order and send you an email when it is available for collection – please allow 3 working days for your items to be ready. As this service is managed by staff, there may be periods of time where orders take longer to be processed. Any relevant updates or times when the service is closed or expecting delays will be clearly stated.

When you’ve received your collection email, your order can be collected from The Vinery Centre during our opening hours (9:00am – 4:00pm, Monday – Friday).
