Equal Play campaign
The Equal Play campaign is based on new research which shows that children’s access to public play areas is unequal and unfair. A new Freedom of Information Act survey of local authorities has revealed that some areas of the UK have almost five times the number of children per playground as others.
Children’s opportunities to play outdoors are a postcode lottery. The Government’s Levelling Up agenda must ensure equal access to public play spaces throughout the UK.
The Equal Play campaign is calling for:
Ring-fenced central government funding for play, to enable local authorities to provide EVERY child with a safe, high-quality playground nearby.
