At the Crann Centre we continue to offer our services and supports in an online capacity during the current restrictions, as well as working on future projects.
One such important project is the development of an inclusive playground and recreation space at the Crann Centre. We very much hope to have this open and ready for use by the end of the Summer should current restrictions be lifted.
We want this space to be the best there is for the children, teenagers and adults who use our services and their families. Most importantly we want the design and layout to be led by your feedback.
We are very grateful that both Alice Moore and Dr Helen Lynch from the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy at University College Cork (UCC) have donated their time and expertise to help us with this research and the design of the space. Both Helen and Alice have extensive experience in this area and are part of several local national and international studies and projects exploring universal design and best practice in outdoor play environments including school yards and local playgrounds.
We would be very grateful if you could take a few minutes of your time and participate in the research by completing the survey using the links below.
Link 1 is for Parents/Guardian and Adults, and Link 2 is specifically for Children and Teenagers, although they may need your help to fill out the survey. We would also be grateful if you could make yourself available for a follow up discussion with the researchers if you are interested. All feedback will be treated in the strictest confidence. We will be happy to share the research findings with you.
Further information is available in the introduction to the survey.

With your support we can create a wonderful space at the Crann Centre which will be used by children, teenagers, adults and families for years to come and will contribute to all of our health and wellbeing.
