Leaders talk: Local Councils and the Future of Play

Leaders talk: Local Councils and the Future of Play

Early in the pandemic playgrounds, schools, playgroups and many other opportunities for play were closed. Our relationship with outside spaces and nature has changed this year, and many local (parish and town) councils have an opportunity to think about the facilities in their local area to ensure that children and young people can have access to opportunities for play no matter what the future holds. Hear national perspectives on how important play is for children and young people and how local councils can use their parks, playgrounds and other facilities to enable play to be a part of every childhood in a post-COVID-19 world.

Speakers: Anita Grant, chair of trustees for Play England and chief executive at the Islington Play Association, Mark Hardy, chairman of the Association of Play Industries and Cllr Teresa Heritage, vice-chairman of the Local Government Association Children and Young People’s Board and deputy leader of Hertfordshire County Council.
