Active Play: Evaluation Report April 2016

Through our Go2Play Fund, we have invested in four play organisations to deliver an Active Play Programme targeting children in the more deprived areas of Scotland.
The Active Play Programme uses play as a means to engage children in physical activity, and to build their skills, confidence and motivation to introduce greater physical activity into their daily lives.
There is significant research available that acknowledges that greater physical activity in the early years contributes to better health, well-being and physical activity outcomes for later life. There is also evidence that active play makes a significant contribution to children’s physical activity and could contribute to the health of future generations.
