National Playhub

Time, permission, space and opportunity to play are essential for children’s mental and
physical health, wellbeing and resilience.

“Play can help build resilience, the capacity for children to thrive despite adversity and
stress in their lives in life.”

Play for a Change, Dr Stuart Lester & Dr Wendy Russell
