Earley Town Council are close to completion of the UK’s very first designed from scratch PiPA Inclusive Playground at Sol Joel. The park is designed to be fully inclusive for all children and will engage youngsters with special needs and disabilities.
Earley Town Council, together with the support of Wokingham Borough Council, have been busy consulting with representatives of Reach Wokingham, Peapods and the Special Educational Needs Department at Earley St. Peter’s School (the School backs on to the Park).
It was increasingly apparent that the region is without a choice of free inclusive play area facilities, a fact that is backed up by KIDS the Disabled Children’s Charity who have found less than 47% of play spaces are accessible across the UK.
To remedy that Earley Town Council worked with the Inclusive Play’s PiPA (Plan Inclusive Play Areas) tool to create a fantastic multi-sensory project designed together with Jupiter Play and Inclusive Play.
The play area will be open in time for the school summer holidays 2015.
