With the latest lockdown, children’s mental well-being is at an all time low so we need to act now! You can give the gift of a normal childhood and help ‘Play it Forward’.
Why we need to ‘Play it Forward’
Our chidlren’s mental health suffered during the first lockdown. Therefore with a winter lockdown upon us, it is vital that we put things in place to protect our children from suffering further.
Most Importantly, playing with friends is an essential for healthy childhood development and the main way in which children learn and grow.
By providing outdoor play within local communities, we are enabling children to socialise and play in the safest way possible. We encourage them to play together in nature and explore their local woodlands, introducing them to new green spaces and giving them the tools to continue to protect their mental health and well-being through the darker months.
Working in line with the current guidelines, we are encouraging people to stay within their local communities by running Wellwoods session within communities.
