We believe all children are entitled to play and have fun regardless of their disability or impairment.  Our resources and training are designed to reduce barriers and help you to become more inclusive in your activities at school, childcare setting or home.  





We have been working with disabled children and young people for over 30 years. 

It is important for us to hear the child's voice, we asked a group of children what they felt play was.... 


Play is what I do when my Mum's not looking - 8 year old

Play is when I hang out with my mates- 14 year old

Play has to be exciting, get your heart racing and adrenaline pumping - 18 year old 

Why should it be any different if the child happens to have an impairment?
