An essential part of the work Inclusive Play carry out is to work extensively with our end users. We must understand the needs of all children and how we can ensure all children can access the play activities we offer.
We were delighted to host a consultation event on 21st April 2016 inviting the students from St Nicholas School and the linked community college to gain their ideas, observe how they interacted with the play items on offer and most importantly let them be part of the brand new inclusive play multiplay unit development – the Omnibus. This is a completely inclusive unit designed to be accessible, yet still challenging for the children who need that play value, and offers complete sensory engagement and the children and young people loved it!
This type of engagement is a great way for us to sense check that our designs match the need of the people we are designing for. It also gives us clues into other elements we may not have thought about or need to develop further. We are pleased to say though that the Omnibus got the thumbs up and the children will get to have a go on at their own playground in the new School term in September.
