Healthy Valleys have received funding for a new project called FIT FOR LIFE. Funding has been received from Children in Need from January 2018- 2021 and The Cattanach Trust from January 2018-2019.Click here for more information.

The project aims to engage and motivate children and families through active play. Through taking part in Active Play session’s children get the chance to increase their physical activity levels, interact in different social circles, develop their fundamental movement skills and increase their confidence along with many more benefits.

We deliver active play sessions for families and children aged 2-5 years and to children in Primary1 to S2 within communities in rural Clydesdale. The active play sessions are based around outdoor active play and are ½ play ranger led and ½ free play. During these session children are introduced to a variety of different games and are able to explore their own capabilities through a wide range of equipment.  As well as play sessions being delivered in playgrounds and gym halls (when poor weather) we also try to take children to different spaces within the local community to help build confidence in playing on different surfaces and objects.

The outcomes which we are aiming for are:

•     Children develop physical literacy /fundamental movement skills

•     Children increase levels of physical activity

•     Children progress into more active forms of play and into sports

•     Awareness of play as a means to improved physical literacy is increased
