Home > Why?

We believe that playing out is a good thing for children and their wider communities.

In these pages you will find more about why we think playing out is a good idea.  Read our 10 good reasons for street play, learn what we mean by free play and find out about some of its benefits. We have a page of research and articles that set out some of the evidence in support of playing out. We also look at the possible concerns some people have had about the playing out idea.
