Inclusive Play Opportunities
Within Flintshire we are committed to providing opportunities for all children. We take action to remove barriers to enable disabled and non- disabled children to play together. 2013 was the 9th year of the Flintshire Buddy Scheme, an integral part of the Summer Playscheme provision, which has enabled the Play Unit to work closely with children and their families to enable children with disabilities to access their own local play provision. All of our Play-workers deliver inclusive play-schemes, for all children living locally.
The Play Unit is also committed to working to increase play opportunities for ‘young carers’ in partnership with Barnardos and Family Matters & also non – English and Non- Welsh speaking children in Flintshire
