PlayBoard’s Youth@Play programme launched in early 2020. The programme, funded by the Department of Education through the Education Authority, builds on the capacity of youth workers to facilitate play in youth centres for their younger members and is built on a recognition that play is the most effective mechanism for engaging with children and young people aged 9-13 years within youth settings.

The pilot programme is currently being delivered to youth settings in Belfast, Armagh/Craigavon, and Banbridge and includes 1-1 support and playwork training for workers and young leaders. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions in place since March 2020 the programme has been adapted for online delivery.
