Play and Well-being.


Who remembers being outdoors building dens, having pretend picnics or playing in mud? Playing outside is great for children’s health but we know that these types of outdoor play experiences are declining.  

During Childrens Mental Health Week everyone can play a part in helping our children to be healthy on the inside and outside. 

Did you know play can help improve children’s physical and mental wellbeing, build resilience and gain social and emotional health.
