Everyone Can Play grant

Everyone Can Play grant program funded the upgrade and construction of 141 inclusive playspace projects across NSW

From 2018 to 2022, the $20 million grant program funded the upgrade and construction of 141 inclusive playspace projects, delivered in partnership with councils and agencies. Applicants were required to match funding and apply the Everyone Can Play guideline (PDF, 38.7 MB) to the project.

The program made longer-term changes to the planning and design of playspaces in NSW by educating the people who manage and design these spaces through the development of the guideline.
