IP Inclusive and CIPA Informals
Summer Park Meet


Saturday 14 August 2021 at 2 pm
Graves Park, Sheffield



Another in our series of regional IP Inclusive and CIPA Informals “park meets” took place in the North of England. We invited people to come along and meet IP colleagues and their families on Saturday 14 August 2021 at the playground at Graves Park in Sheffield. Everyone who worked in IP was welcome to attend – and to bring their families – and in the end twelve people joined, including children.

Here’s a photo of some of us enjoying our coffee and resolutely ignoring the threatening sky (it didn’t rain in the end).

The organiser of this event was Vanessa Stainthorpe, committee lead for the IP Inclusive North of England network. She would love to hear from anyone interested in similar North of England get-togethers for the future.


There’s more…

The IP Inclusive communities and regional networks, alongside the Informals, are busy organising park meets in other regions. Please visit this post for an updated list, or just keep an eye on our website Events page.

We would love to have more in other regions. If you’d like to get involved with a park meet near you and there isn’t one arranged already, please get in touch (by emailing Kathryn Taylor), letting us know where you’re based and what days of the week/times would suit you best. It’s a great opportunity to connect with other IP folk!
