iPlay Audit and Planning Tool
The iPlay Audit and Planning Tool is a tool that is currently being developed by Inclusion Solutions to enable Local Government Authorities, Play space Planners, and Landscape Architects to make sure that the play spaces in and around their locality are accessible, functional and socially inclusive for people with disabilities. The development and creation of this tool comes from a pre-identified need in Western Australia. Over the past 12 months alone, Inclusion Solutions has been contacted by over 10 LGAs across WA requesting assistance:
(1) To analyse/audit their current playgrounds and play spaces and;
(2) To plan future redevelopments by providing guidance and advice regarding inclusive play
This presentation will detail the learnings from the development of the iPlay Audit and Planning Tool and why it's important to make sure social inclusion is at the forefront the development of any shared space within communities.
