Research shows that children’s play, especially when not overly structured or directed by adults, has a range of benefits to children of all ages. Playing helps children to develop resilience and skills that are beneficial in adulthood. Equally important are the immediate benefits to children’s physical and emotional wellbeing.

The webinar will:

  • Highlight the ways in which playing can improve health outcomes for children
  • Explore how we might support more children to play, and more often.
     

This work supports the ‘Building a Healthier Gwent’ ambition, where ‘In 2030 the places where we live, work, learn and play make it easier for people in our communities to live healthy, fulfilled lives’.

The event is aimed at practitioners working directly with children and families as well as those operating at a strategic level in subject areas which have an influence on play including Education, Planning, Roads/Transport and Leisure. It is for colleagues working in Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen.

This is a partnership webinar, delivered by Play Wales with Aneurin Bevan Gwent Public Health Team.
