Sponsor a Swing

Local businesses and residents are being invited to help sponsor playground upgrades which replace low-back infant swing seats with an Australian-made inclusive high-back version so all children can participate in play.

Mosman Council and Mosman Chamber of Commerce have partnered with social enterprise Play For All Australia to provide the inclusive upgrades to a number of local parks.

Businesses that want to support inclusion in the community can sponsor the installation of a swing at a playground in Mosman and in return will have their name on the back of their sponsored seat and be included in a digital marketing and community engagement campaign.

Visit the website or email hello@playforall.com.au for a brochure before expressions of interest close on 31 May.
