This project was funded on 23 Apr 2018!

Our group has been trying to introduce more inclusive play equipment in the park for the less able children. The first, recently installed was an inclusive nest swing and was an instant hit with the disabled children. So much so, they were queuing up to use it. "This has been long overdue" one parent said. Once on the swing, the children stay on for some time knowing they'll have to queue again to get on it! We now, in conjunction with Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council, want to improve on the inclusive play facilities with a roundabout suitable for wheelchairs, there is no other play equipment like this in the vicinity. This would mean that children with physical and mental disabilities can use the swing with their brothers, sisters, friends or simply on their own! It would be the first of its kind in our park and would enhance the play experience for less able children.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install a wheelchair roundabout into an existing play area

Why it's a great idea:

There is a definite lack of play facilities for disabled children in this park and the surrounding area. The provision of a nest swing was an instant hit, as will a wheelchair roundabout be.

Steps to get it done:

  • To be installed within 3 months of funding received

It will increase the Inclusive Play facilities in the locality.
