New information sheet - Play: inclusive provision
The Play: inclusive provision information sheet explores the attitudinal, environmental and institutional barriers that face disabled children and young people accessing play provision – and how we as play providers and playworkers can overcome them. It also includes the latest policy information and case studies.
Play Wales worked in partnership with Di Murray to produce this information sheet. It is an updated version of the Inclusive play information sheet Play Wales published in 2007.
Di Murray has extensive experience of campaigning for play provision for disabled children, which includes published materials for Kidsactive (KIDS), and the development of a nationally accredited play module within the Irish FETAC framework. She has a long history as a trainer, published author and partner in Playworks.UK.
The production of this information sheet has been funded by the Welsh Government to support the developments arising from the Play Sufficiency Assessments completed by each local authority in Wales. Section 11 of the Children and Families (Wales) Measure 2010 places a duty on local authorities to assess and secure sufficient play opportunities for children in their area.
