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?
