Free to Play: A guide to creating accessible and inclusive public play spaces

Free to Play: A guide to creating accessible and inclusive public play spaces is designed to ensure that all children and young people, including those with additional support needs, can exercise their right to play in their local communities.

Written by play, children’s rights and inclusive play space experts, Theresa Casey and Harry Harbottle, the guide has been produced by Inspiring Scotland, Play Scotland and the Nancy Ovens Trust in support of the Play Strategy for Scotland.

Together, we are passionate about children’s right to play and the huge benefits having accessible play outdoor play space can have on children’s development.
