Play Highland Consultation
The Play Highland consultation was carried out in 2010/11 and the resulting report was used to evaluate parts of the All to Play For Highland Play Strategy 2006-2010 and also to provide a base line against which the effectiveness of the new play strategy Play Matters 2012-2015 For Highland’s Children Play Strategy could be measured. There are actions across the sectors to deliver the outcomes of the play strategy.
