Hi my name is Lynn and I have been reading about Scope's campaign 'Disabled Children Shouldn't Be Left Out'.  With a group of other people, I volunteer at my local park and we would like to see it developed so that it caters for people with disabilities and for those who are not disabled.  Out idea is that it would encourage people to play/exercise together encouraging community cohesion and understanding.  Is there anyone out there who knows of any parks that do something like this already?  We are really keen to make this happen but need to be able to approach our local authority with a decent plan..... anyone?     thanks

    did you find any more out? this is such a good plan and it would be sad to see it not get support. Do you know anyone you can approach?

    Hi @LynnR :) I'm sorry for taking a little while to get back to you. I was wondering whether you might be interested in joining our Let's Play Fair co-production group?

    I'm not currently aware of any specific parks that do this already. Have you tried getting in touch with any 'Friends of' groups or local charities to see if any of them are working on these kinds of projects already?
