WAGGA

Touched by Olivia is excited to be working with City of Wagga Wagga to build the first inclusive playspace in the region.

We were approached by local mum, Leila Bright who was concerned that her young daughter Mia had no where she could play in her local community. She’d seen some great inclusive playspaces on her travels, and was keen to help build one in her hometown of Wagga.

Mia Stewart loves playing at the park, just like any toddler, but her disability can limit her access to equipment.

Mia was born with proximal femoral focal deficiency and her parents, Leila Bright and Brent Stewart, have to help her physically access the swings and slide.

Her mum, Leila, wants an all-inclusive playground, with wheelchair access and sensory equipment for children with autism, to be built in Wagga.

“It would be such a valuable asset to Wagga,” she said.

“Play is such an important part of their development.

“If children have to sit there because they can’t access parts of the park, it’s not fair.”
