This free event hosted by Wolverhampton For Everyone is for anyone that wants to learn how they can close their street temporarily for children’s Playing Out activities.
The UK went into lockdown in March 2020 and the nation has been under various restrictions since then. This has had a detrimental effect on many people, but children have particularly suffered during this time. Schools have been closed, children have not been able to see their friends and many children have spent much of the time indoors. This has taken a toll on children’s physical and mental health. Experts and academics have called for children’s play to be prioritised as we begin to move out of lockdown.
From the 12th April, people living in Wolverhampton will be able to apply for a temporary street closure for Playing Out activities.
To support this, Wolverhampton for Everyone is organising a free Playing Out Activation session which will help you to arrange your own Playing Out activities in your street.
We have lots of tips and tricks to share with you as well as some handy templates which will save you loads of time when organising your event.
