About The Yard Adventure Centre
The Yard is a purpose built indoor and outdoor adventure playground for children and young people with disabilities.
The Yard is a safe environment where children and young people can experience play without feeling different. We run family, school and club sessions in the heart of Edinburgh.
Visiting The Yard is a unique and dynamic adventure experienced every year by more than 1700 children and young people with disabilities. Our doors open daily throughout the year to schools, families, disabled children and young people, their siblings and friends.
In the delivery of all our services we think creatively and carefully and use materials and junk that others would cast aside.
Our team stand back and reflect as much as they step in to encourage and facilitate inclusive play. This consistent practice has allowed The Yard to build a library of experience that we willingly share with other organisations.
Our greatest accolade is a sea of smiling faces across the adventure play ground and children and young people sharing, space, time and playful laughter together.
Our service is inspected with equal rigour by the Care Inspectorate and their latest review described our strengths as a family service.
Our vision for the future extends beyond our humble beginnings and we are working with other organisations in other areas of Scotland to share our experience and open similar centres nationwide.
