About this organisation

Through play we learn how to be part of society. Play is a fundamental part of childhood, and according to the United Nations it is a child’s right to enjoy play and leisure.

Touched by Olivia has created a unique model based on partnership by bringing together communities, government and corporate Australia to deliver special places that change the way our society plays. Through extensive research, advocacy and guidelines based on the Universal Design Principles, we assist communities to create special places that encourage and invite social inclusion through play.

Many playspaces in Australia do not meet the needs of their community. Physicaldisabilities, coupled with childhood disorders, and the ever- changing demographic ofstay at home carers, means that every detail needs to be considered for a space tobe truly inclusive. This is why we are creating the Livvi's Place National Network of Inclusive Playspaces.

Why we support the vision

One of these key principles is access to nature. The extensive benefits of all people being able to have accessible and inclusive green spaces in their communities is one of our driving forces.
