For over a decade the centre, in Redbrae Road, Camelon, has been a place where people with a visual or hearing loss, their friends, families, carers and the wider community can access quality services and advice.

Forth Valley Sensory Centre, which opened on March 30, 2006, aims to be as inclusive and accessible as possible and build positive relationships throughout the area.

Late last year the centre enjoyed another celebration when manager Jacquie Winning was awarded an MBE for her continued commitment to helping people throughout 2020, despite the restrictions that came with the COVID-19 pandemic.

She was quick to praise members of her team for their hard work in 2020 and throughout the centre’s 15 years.

Mrs Winning said: “This award recognises the achievements of everyone at the Sensory Centre in what has been an exceptionally challenging year.”
