Play, participation & poverty:

  •  How our policies can create fairer, healthier futures for children & young people

With Anti-Poverty Week and Children’s Week both falling in October, NAPCAN took a look at the important overlap between the themes of the two weeks: child poverty and play. 

This fresh conversation built on what we already know…  that: 

  • activities like outdoor play, organised sport, dance and drama outside of school are good for the future health of all children 
  • the benefits are greatest for young people who commonly have the least access to these activities (i.e. from lower-income families)
  • our policies have the power to remove many of the barriers that lock people out of opportunities to play and participate
  • fantastic local examples are providing insight into simple smart investments that are creating fairer, more protective communities for children. 

We heard from passionate researchers and advocates on the topic:
