Robin Sutcliffe, Chairman of Sutcliffe Play
The development of play over the years.
‘ Lack of play leaves children mentally and physically unprepared to cope with life. This affects them in childhood and throughout the rest of their lives. It is urgent that play is prioritised, for two important reasons. Lack of play causes untold h
arm to children and there are huge benefits to be gained when we make sufficient time and space for children to play every day. These benefits contribute to the prevention of the prime issues of health, mental health, obesity and school exclusion – key issues in need of urgent resolution. Play builds happy, healthy children.’
