The Yard & Edinburgh Airport
The Yard is an award-winning charity running adventure play services for disabled children, young people and their families. We offer creative, adventurous indoor and outdoor play experiences in a well-supported environment. Since 1986, set up by a group of parents, teachers and social workers who recognised the need for a safe place to play, our services have grown significantly, but retain our ethos of child-centred and -led play. Our flagship Edinburgh centre was refurbished by BBC DIY SOS in 2012; The Yard Dundee opened in 2015, followed by The Yard Fife in 2016. In 2018 we supported over 1,100 disabled children and young people and their families.
