News coverage of racial tensions recently has led to an outpouring of anger and frustration and has made many of us reflect on whether our policies, practice and actions are good enough.  PlayBoard NI is committed to reviewing all of our policies and practice to ensure that what we do makes a positive difference. We support the Black Lives Matter movement against racism, for justice and fairness.

PlayBoard NI respects and celebrates equality, diversity and inclusion and will work to strengthen our commitment and actions to tackle racism and discrimination. We recognise, respect and advocate for the needs of our membership, workforce and all children and young people irrespective of gender, background, cultural or racial origin or individual abilities.

PlayBoard is a member of the UK Children’s Play Policy Forum (CPPF). We fully endorse our CPPF statement which can be found here https://www.playscotland.org/cppf-statement-on-racism
