KIDS Adventure Play Hackney
Working with KIDS Adventure Play Hackney
KIDS Adventure Play Hackney is an adventure playground with a difference. Its aim is to ensure that children and young people with impairments can enjoy the kind of play experience that’s an essential part of a young person’s development.
The facility in Clapton is a secure, fully accessible space with specialist workers that can provide one-to-one support for play. In this way, KIDS can help to overcome the barriers to participation that too often exclude disabled children and young people from mainstream adventure play.
HCT Group provides wheelchair accessible buses and drivers six days a week throughout the year to ensure that service users can be safely transported to and from the playground. This is crucial as most service users’ families don’t have their own transport.
‘We have always found the drivers and the staff in HCT Group’s Ash Grove office to be helpful, understanding, friendly and flexible,’ said Julian Danquah of KIDS Adventure Play Hackney. ‘Were there an alternative commercial service, no doubt its cost would be prohibitive and severely limit the service we are currently able to provide to our young people.’
‘Everyone at KIDS would like to say a big thank you to HCT Group for its help and support. Long may it be around to continue to support our work, but more importantly, the local community.’
