Playing Out and COVID-19

Welcome to these pages, created in response to this changing and challenging situation, not least for parents and children.

We hope you are coping OK. At Playing Out, our focus is always on children’s wellbeing, rights and freedom, and also on neighbourliness and rethinking streets. Our work is also very much about ‘doing’: how can we all make a difference in our own home patches? How together can we help bigger positive change come about for children?

In these regularly updated pages we bring together guidance, useful information, and good ideas and suggestions from all around our network. We also offer an on-line training programme for professionals, activists and parents/residents who want to make change happen.
