Wicksteed will always accommodate the needs of less able users and will work closely with our clients to ensure we meet the needs of the local community in any inclusive play design we produce. We follow the guidance below and view this as evidence of good practice in the specification of play facilities.
‘Developing Accessible Play Spaces – A good practice guide’ states that:
“All children do not need to access play spaces in the same way but they are fundamentally entitled to go out to play. Good design of public play spaces is needed in order to make this possible. Each child is different – not every piece of equipment in a play space needs to be accessible to every child but access to the social experience of play is key.”
