Play Strategy

In Gateshead we recognise the importance of play in the lives of children and young people, and aim to develop more high quality accessible play opportunities.

Gateshead is taking the opportunity in the next few years to develop more play opportunities for children and young people, aged from birth to 19.

The Gateshead Play Strategy summarises the key objectives we want to achieve, bringing together children, families, professionals and communities to plan together activities and opportunities for children to be creative and have fun, through free play; free (no cost); free (child led); free (to come and go).
