BlueGreen Inclusive Project Lead

  • Part time
  • £26,754 pro-rata
  • Tranent
  • Closing 19th February 2024

  • Advertised from 24th January 2024
  • 24 hours per week for 52 weeks with the possibility of additional hours within our play programmes. Sessions with children are likely to be out of school hours.


ELPA’s newest project aims to improve access to outdoor spaces for children with additional support needs (ASN) to play and socialise, all year round, with friends, family and peers. This project builds on several years of ELPA activity which has highlighted concerns about lack of inclusive play spaces and looked for ways to improve access to inclusive opportunities.

The aim of the project is to help us stimulate best practice on inclusive and accessible outdoor spaces in East Lothian. East Lothian has great countryside, parks, playgrounds and coastal assets but these are often inaccessible for children and families with ASN.

ELPA is seeking a creative, well organised and play-oriented person to lead our BlueGreen project. It’s a role full of opportunities to put creative ideas into practice, build relationships with children and foster children’s expression of their own ideas and views.

The project lead will work alongside our Development Team & Delivery Team to:

  • build on ELPA’s prior work on inclusion with children and families
  • collaborate with the Play Team to deliver inclusive outdoor play
  • plan, organise and deliver creative opportunities for children with ASN to share their views and ideas
  • create a temporary demonstration space to show what can be done
  • involve children to document the project, report and promote findings.
