Situation

There are currently over 770,000 children under the age of 16 in the UK with a disability (6% of the child population). Improvements in medical science have seen a significant increase in children surviving premature birth, often resulting in ongoing complex health conditions. Nearly (62%) of local authorities in England have cut their budgets for childcare and play services since 2011, and almost 50% are offering a reduced level of holiday childcare services.

Solution

‘Play’ is a fundamental part of childhood. It enables children to develop social skills, form friendships, develop physical skills and learn about and become confident in their environment. To meet the complex needs of severely disabled children and youngsters who face challenging barriers to engage in mainstream activity, the Lady’s Taverners Play Spaces Appeal will look to provide young disabled people across the UK with the range of outdoor and soft play equipment.
