We believe play matters because it is fundamental to our children’s wellbeing and development. Play is so important that it has been recognised as a human right in the United Nation Convention on the Rights of the Child.

 Our Play Strategy takes its vision from The Scottish Government’s Play Strategy, which states;

‘We want Scotland to be the best place to grow up. A nation which values play as a life-enhancing daily experience for all our children and young people; in their homes, nurseries, schools and communities.’

The Highland Play Strategy 2016-2020 translates this vision into a Highland context where our aim is to make Highland the best place to grow up. It builds upon the success of the previous Highland Play Strategy Play Matters 2012-15.

Highland Community Guidance – Developing Inspiring and Sustainable Community Spaces for Play.
