Rising Sun Country Park, North Tyneside
The Tim Lamb Children’s Centre in the Rising Sun Country Park is a specialist centre for disabled children and young people and their families where they can play and socialise in safe and secure environment.
Facilities include specialist play areas, sensory rooms, offices, children’s I.T room, a new car park and a new external play area with significant landscaping all with an emphasis on accessibility for all.
The centre is located in a previously derelict building and was refurbished using almost exclusively voluntary labour and donations from across the building trade.
Building work was carried out to an unusually tight timescale due to the deadline for filming a TV programme helping to promote the charity behind the project.
DKAS subsequently won the award for best community building at LABC’s Northern Building Excellence Awards 2013.
