Abstract

This action research project presents an inter-agency response to supporting infants living in emergency accommodation. Through providing families with a play mat and accompanying materials, and creating a dedicated space for play, parents are equipped with the knowledge to support their infant's development. To date, 80 practitioners and 220 families across Dublin’s City North have participated in the programme with findings from a post-implementation survey highlighting how the mat was a safe and secure place for the babies to play, and facilitated discussions on the importance of tummy time and play. Future directions of the project will be shared.
