A new playground catering specifically for children with special needs in Ryde, Sydney, is the latest community project to benefit from the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts of global professional technical and management support services provider AECOM.
The ‘Livvi’s Place’ playground at Yamble Reserve is a project by the Touched By Olivia Foundation, and caters for children with a range of special needs relating to mobility, vision and hearing, as well as for children affected by spectrum disorders such as autism.
The playground benefited from $110,000 of pro-bono work completed by AECOM, in addition to receiving financial support from the City of Ryde, State and Federal grants, and probono contributions from other partners.
