Play Sufficiency Assessment

What do we want to know?: 

Play is central to children’s enjoyment of life and essential to their physical and emotional well-being and their healthy development. ‘Children’ means persons under the age of 18 years.

We are carrying out assessments to evaluate outdoor play opportunities and experiences for children in Glasgow. To help us do this we are asking   citizens of Glasgow who may be parents, carers and people who work with children  to complete our short survey.

‘The importance of play in children’s daily lives and healthy development has become increasingly recognised in recent years. A growing body of evidence supports the view that playing, throughout childhood, is not only an innate behaviour but also contributes to children’s quality of life, their well-being and their physical, social, emotional and cognitive development. The type of environment for play is also important, having an impact on children’s experience, choices and relationships, both with other people and with the environment itself’ Play Scotland.
