Sense Launch ‘Play Toolkits’ for Parents and Play Settings

 ‘Play Toolkits’

National disability charity releases instructional guides and video mini-series to:

- Help make play settings accessible for children with multiple needs

- Increase parents’ confidence playing with their children

Earlier in the year, an inquiry, co-led by Lord Blunkett, revealed that one in two disabled children have been turned away from play settings and activities

Nine out of ten parents of disabled children claimed their child didn’t have the same opportunities to access play, compared to non-disabled children.

Sense, the national deafblind charity, has been awarded £31,000 by the BFI (British Film Institute), to enable deafblind people to take part in a series of accessible filmmaking workshops.

The Accessible Filmmaking Project, delivered in collaboration with Kate Dangerfield from the University of Roehampton, will see ten weekly workshops take place across the country, each focusing on exploration and experimentation of film as a form of communication and expression. The project will provide creative opportunities for people with sensory impairments to experiment with filmmaking techniques, test equipment for accessibility and improve access to low-budget film production and audio-visual media.
