England: Inclusive provision survey report
As part of the Playday 2013 campaign KIDS, a charity that works with disabled children and young people, examined how inclusive play for disabled children has progressed over the last two years.
A survey of over 900 people working across play and leisure provision and disabled children’s services in England, found that although attitudes towards including disabled children and young people in mainstream activities has improved, most providers still do not have the resources or support needed to deliver good quality inclusion.
Only 47 percent of survey responders said that local services and play spaces were accessible to disabled children and young people.
The survey report highlights the main concerns preventing disabled children from accessing local play and leisure provision, and some ideas on how to address the concerns.
