PlayBoard NI will be joining the Department for Communities for a webinar on Thursday 17 September, 12:30 – 2:00pm to discuss the development of a new sports strategy for Northern Ireland. PlayBoard’s focus will on the important role play has in establishing activity patterns that continue throughout life within more formal sport and recreational channels.

As part of the webinar the Department are keen to hear first-hand the views of parents/carers on play and its role in the wider sports and recreation field and how participation in sports can be increased, particularly amongst non-participant groups.

The webinar will be held over the Zoom platform, so if you are a parent/carer living in Northern Ireland and you would like to be part of the webinar to share your views on this important issue email alan.herron@playboard.co.uk by Wednesday 16th September.  Please note that places are limited therefore early expression of interest is advised.
