Scotland’s Play Charter – take the pledge

Play Scotland is promoting Scotland’s first inclusive Play Charter. This describes a collective commitment to play for all babies, children and young people in Scotland.

The charter is for parents, play providers, play champions and everyone with an interest and/or responsibility for play in Scotland.

It builds on the Scottish Government’s National Play Strategy and the Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) approach to supporting children, young people and their families.

For more information on the Charter and details on how you can pledge your support see the documents below.

Family learning supports parents, grandparents, carers and other family members to be an active part of their children’s learning, as well as becoming learners themselves. This event will include many different types of activities and will take place in the community centre and delivery will include other partner organisations.   Family learning aims to raise aspirations and create a long-term change in the culture of the family and patterns of learning.
