Calling for children’s views on play!

Calling for children’s views on play!

As Playday fast approaches, we’re calling on children and young people across the UK to tell us what play is like for them – where they play, what they do when they play and what stops them from playing.

Whether you work with children and young people, are a parent, carer, aunt, uncle or grandparent, it would be great if you could help us share the Playday survey far and wide! The results of the survey will support the Playday 2012 Get out and playcampaign by highlighting the issues around children’s play and helping us show the importance of play in children’s lives. Most importantly, the survey will give children and young people a voice on the issues that affect them.

The survey can be accessed via the Playday website and will close on Friday 20 July.

If you’re holding a Playday celebration, we hope your plans are going well – don’t forget to register your event on the Playday website. If you haven’t started planning yet and would like to get involved, there’s still plenty of time – check out our quick planning guide and tips from organisers on the Playday website. It doesn’t matter whether your celebration is big or small, what’s most important is that you get involved in whatever way you can and celebrate children’s right to play on Wednesday 1 August.

Playday is the national day for play.

Playday is coordinated by Play England, Play Wales, Play Scotland and PlayBoard Northern Ireland. Play England is hosted by NCB.
