Play Torbay do amazing work for children locally and it was good to catch up with their team to follow up on progress after the visit I arranged from the Children's Commissioner, Anne Longfield. I was glad to hear that their funding is now far more secure and that their Easter Play Activities Programme is now here, with lots of activities for children and young people of all ages. Playground activities are free to anyone who would like to join in. There are three playgrounds: Wildfox in Paignton, Indigos in Brixham and Fort Apache in Torquay.
If your child needs the support of their Play Inclusion Team for any of the activities, do contact Play Torbay as soon as possible: please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01803 850157. They have team of highly trained workers skilled in playwork and youth work who are able to support young people on a one-to-one basis. You can also view the programme on their website. I will continue to press for children's play and activity to be supported as I think it is a vital part of improving mental and physical health for all our children.
