KIDS Hackney Playground is the only specialist playground for disabled children and currently supports over 100 families who would otherwise have no alternative option. It is a special space where disabled children and young people are given confidence and independence to enjoy leisure and recreational activities with the encouragement and support of professionally trained, caring play workers. 

92% of parents feel their children miss out on play and leisure activities due their
disability and struggle to find appropriate activities for them. 1 in 5 children in Hackney has a disability making KIDS Hackney Playground a lifeline for the local families we support.

Most of the children we work with at the playground require 1:1, high intensity support; we need enough staff on hand to help with additional tasks such as feeding, lifting, changing and ensuring every child thrives in our care. We need to raise £100,000 every year to cover these costs and keep this vital resource open.
