Go Play was a two-year project (2009-2011) funded by the Scottish Government supported through Inspiring Scotland which aimed to raise the availability and quality of play services for children aged 5-13 years.
Through the appointment of Practice Play Advisor, Leigh Davis, CALA worked to improve and promote free play opportunities for children throughout the Highlands. Activities included fire bowl sessions, loose parts play and support with planning and evaluation. Leigh also worked to develop links with the wider community and offered support to rural families.
