Investment announced for child play facilities – Jennifer McCann
Sinn Féin MLA and Junior Minister Jennifer McCann today announced a £1.6 million investment to enhance play and leisure opportunities for children and young people.
Speaking at an event organised by Playboard at the Ramada Hotel this morning the West Belfast MLA said:
“We want to achieve a much greater awareness of the value of play to emphasise that play and leisure is a vital ingredient in the development of children and through their transition to adulthood.
“This new funding will support a number of key activities, which will provide greater local access to play, and support for play at a community level.
“It is important that these activities are designed and delivered by local people and involve the views of the children themselves.”
