Inclusive playgrounds – can you help?

A new campaign by Scope is calling on parents and interested parties to identify how inclusive their local play areas are for disabled children and young people. The ‘Let’s Play Fair’ campaign is aimed at national and local government to create more inclusive playgrounds so that all children have suitable play equipment. As part of the campaign, they are asking people to visit their local play areas and complete an online survey that will be used to petition for change with Government. They have also created an email template that you can use to email your local councillor to petition for change. Scope are hoping to raise people’s awareness of the issue and to understand that families are being excluded from these spaces. We at nasen firmly believe that play is fundamental to children's development and all children need and indeed have a right to access their local play facilities.
