Playing Out – Do you want children to be able to play freely outside their own front door? Playing Out is a parent and resident led movement restoring children’s freedom to play out in the streets and spaces where they live, for their health, happiness and sense of belonging. In Monmouthshire we want to provide as much support as we can to communities to make this happen.

At the Playing Out website you’ll find all you need to start regular ‘playing out’ sessions on your street or other actions to spark change where you live. Also ideas, stories and inspiration gathered from people around the UK and beyond.

If you’re interested in starting playing out where you live in Monmouthshire please email judithlangdon@monmouthshire.gov.uk
