The Yard, Edinburgh is home to adventure and play for disabled children and young people. It’s a wonderful resource of emotional and practical support for families, as well as fun and friendship for everyone involved.

Kids can get creative in two fantastic play areas. Outdoors there are swings, go-karts, trikes, huts, sand pits, a brilliant sensory garden and loads of natural materials to play with. Inside you’ll find musical instruments, arts and crafts, dressing up, a fully equipped kitchen and a calming sensory room. There’s something fun for every ability and all visitors are supported.
