Scotland has its very own Play Charter. This describes a collective commitment to play for all babies, children and young people 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.
Children and young people have the need and the right to play indoors and outdoors in welcoming and stimulating environments. Through play children have fun; develop and learn; assess and manage risk; use their imaginations and create new experiences that contribute to their health; wellbeing and a happy childhood.
