Inclusive play creates an environment sensitive to the needs of anyone who might use the space; providing a welcoming place where people feel comfortable yet challenged, and removing obstacles and barriers that prevent people of all ages, cultural backgrounds and abilities (both physical and mental) from participating. More than simply providing disabled access, inclusive play provides parallel play and social interaction opportunities to bring all children together.
From accessible equipment to sensory panels and active play opportunities such as rebounding platforms and carousels, there are a number of ways you can bring a few inclusive play pieces into the recreational space to improve overall inclusivity and participation for people of all ages, all cultures and all abilities.
Whether through independent pieces, sensory exploration in Sand and Water Play, musical expression in our range of Freenotes instruments, or bespoke tactile sensory items incorporated through pathways and landscaping, thoughtful design can improve the complete recreational experience for all users.
