The Illawarra's first virtual reality sensory room for people with a disability was a hit with one and all when The Disability Trust opened its new facility in North Wollongong in March. The facility was opened by Cunningham MP, Sharon Bird.
Evenness by Devika is the latest virtual reality hardware and sensory room software giving users with a disability a full virtual sensory experience without the need to purchase physical and traditional sensory room equipment.
Club Trust Illawarra manager Gerald Farrugia said the experience has been well received by The Trust's participants so far.

"There is also scope to look further and collaborate in the academic space on the effectiveness of the virtual reality experience to that of a physical space," he said.
The virtual reality sensory room hardware was purchased thanks to a $10,000 grant through the Federal Government's Stronger Communities Programme.
The new centre on Ralph Black Drive, North Wollongong is also home to a number of school leaver programs including Club Trust Day Options and School Leaver Employment Support, as well as numerous social and community programs operated by The Disability Trust.
Diane Dimovski, senior manager of Disability Employment Services says the centre is helping to boost the confidence and capacity of young people with different abilities with the School Leaver Employment Supports program particularly focusing on those who aspire to find paid work in open employment.
