Making Inclusion Inclusive

Inclusion can be tokenistic and if we look at our settings can we honestly say that we are offering a provision which is accessed by all parts of our community? What do we need to do to make our setting more accessible and we need to remember that inclusion is more than just disability


34) Why girls only?

Sianead Crawford & Issy Harvey

Why would open access adventure playgrounds offer single sex only sessions?

The Sisterhood Project based a Somerford Grove Adventure Playground in Tottenham, uses a combination of Play and Youth Work to respond to local need; a diverse, busy population that is living through many changes.

In this sessions we'll think about why and when single sex work adds to the offer of a playground and what this work might look like.
