Everyone Can Play in NSW Grants Program

The Everyone Can Play in NSW Grant is a NSW Government commitment to support councils to renew, renovate and build inclusive playgrounds across all of NSW.

 

In 2018, $4 million will be made available to councils to fund the construction of new, or upgrade existing playspaces. Funds are awarded to councils on a matched dollar-for-dollar basis.

 

The Office of Open Space and Parklands manages the Everyone Can Play Grant and the NSW Government is committed to providing playspaces for people of all ages and abilities and needs to enjoy to ensure that everyone can play.

 

The Everyone Can Play Grant is now closed.

 

Everyone Can Play in NSW Grant Core Objectives

  • Funding of inclusive playspace delivery across NSW by partnering with Councils to design and construct new and upgraded playspaces.
  • Making long term changes to the planning and design of play spaces in NSW by educating the people who manage and design these spaces. This will ensure the lasting influence of this program for future years.

 

The combination of these objectives will allow the NSW Government to immediately deliver on-ground benefits to the community while simultaneously changing the way playspaces are provided into the future.
