If you have a child with a disability, we encourage you to visit The Yard during a family session, try it out and decide if it suits your family. Your first visit is free, and you do not need to book.

After your first visit, all children and young people who visit The Yard must be registered as members. Please sign up below with our online system, email us to request a membership form or pick one up next time you're in. 

Membership is available to any child or young person with a disability. If you are unsure whether The Yard would be suitable for your family, please call us on 0131 476 4506 or talk to our play team during a family session.

Please ensure you take out the membership in your child's name

Please note, The Yard's membership pricing structure is changing. You can learn more about these changes on our membership FAQ page.
