Campaigning for the importance of quality, free play in Scotland

#moreplayplease

Play Scotland welcomes the announcement from the First Minister removing the requirement of children aged 11 and under to physically distance when out playing with their friends from 3rd July 2020. CEO Marguerite Hunter Blair was very happy with this necessary development.

“This is fantastic news for children, young people and families in Scotland. We are delighted that the First Minister has been able to support children’s play, with all the benefits this brings in terms of health, wellbeing and FUN. We realise this does not include children who are shielding and will consider what support can be made available to meet their play needs.”
