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.
