Inclusive Play and Leisure

Play and leisure are recognised as key areas for building bridges towards the inclusion of disabled children and young people within the mainstream.

However, in spite of increasing legislative and policy commitment to the inclusion of disabled children in all areas of life, they still face considerable challenges in accessing mainstream play and leisure activities. We understand inclusive leisure as a natural process through which all of us go to the places we want to go to, with the people we want to be with.

We work with play and leisure providers to bring about change so that disabled children and their families can take part in activities of their choice. We work with families to help them access opportunities for play alongside leisure clubs and activities.
