It can be hard to keep up with all the Special Needs news. So we’ve put it all in one place for you.
Each week Julie Jones wraps up the latest developments and inspiration in accessible travel.
NSW launches Everyone Can Play
The NSW Department of Planning and the Environment released their Everyone Can Play Guidelines last week.
Local councils, landscape architects and anyone who builds playgrounds can use the guidelines to ensure their playgrounds are inclusive for all.
The purpose is to ensure everyone – regardless of age, ability or cultural background can access and use community spaces. The guidelines are underpinned by three principles:
-Can I get there?
– Can I play?
– Can I stay?
You might even spot a familiar face in the video.
A touching story of love.
This man has won our heart. What a lovely gesture.
Brands being more inclusive
We’re glad to hear more brands are making moves to cater for special needs. This story does come from overseas. We hope to see a similar movement with Australian brands take off too.
