Why We Play
Outdoor play is beneficial for all children. It allows them to learn from nature and interact with their environment. Not only is it important for their physical health and development, but by enabling children, young people and adults to interact together, a play area can truly unite a community. Of course, some children find it easier to engage with play areas than others. Consider a wheel chair user when faced with a traditional play park — or think about how a busy, brightly coloured and noisy space must feel for a child with Autism.
At Inclusive Play our vision is to design, develop and manufacture quality products that enable children — no matter what their ability — to play together. We believe in the social model of disability. In other words, disability is a socially created problem and it is up to all of us to make the environmental changes necessary to allow for the full participation of people with disabilities in all areas of social life. With this in mind, we strive to create completely unique products that punctuate, not define a play space, embracing the true meaning of inclusion.
