PlayBoard NI

PlayBoard NI is an independent charity and the lead organisation for the development and promotion of children and young people’s play in Northern Ireland.

OUR MISSION
Leading the Play Agenda.

OUR CORE VALUES
1. We believe that play is a fundamental right of childhood and is central to children and young people’s development;
2. We recognise, respect and value the voices of children and young people, putting their play needs at the core of everything that we do;
3. We value and welcome the views of others and are committed to working collectively to drive the play agenda;
4. We respect and embrace difference;
5. We welcome challenge and embrace change;
6. We support, value and respect each other.

Since its establishment in 1985, PlayBoard NI has been committed to supporting children and young people’s play through a combination of:
– Service delivery and development
– Campaigning and lobbying
– Research, evaluation and awareness raising
– Working in partnership with others to put play on the agenda of policy makers and resource providers; and
– Promoting best practice in Play and Playwork

A membership organisation, PlayBoard NI works closely with and provides support to over 1100 member groups, all of whom are committed to helping us to achieve our goal of developing quality play opportunities that improve children and young people’s lives across Northern Ireland.

As a rights based organisation we strongly believe that play is an intrinsic aspect of children and young people’s lives. PlayBoard NI works from the premise that play is fundamental to a healthy and happy childhood. Play challenges and informs our understanding of children and young people because it views them as competent and confident human beings.
