Have your say: Play and Recreation needs of Children and Young People in Mayo

Please see the following we have been asked to pass onto parents.  We would encourage you to complete the questionnaire in order that your voice be heard.

Dear Parent / Guardian

Mayo County Council are conducting research into the play and recreation needs of children and young people (0 – 18 Years) in Mayo to develop a county wide Play and Recreation Strategy. As part of this work we are consulting with as many children, young people and adults as possible across the county. Mayo County Council invites you as parents to join us in developing our Play and Recreation Strategy.

Parents can contribute by taking part in an online survey that will inform and shape the strategy which will have a key focus on supporting children and young people ‘playing outside’. Mayo County Council is keen to get as many views as possible so we can reflect your opinions within the strategy. This will inform and influence an action plan aimed at improving and increasing outdoor play and recreation opportunities across the county. The link to the questionnaire hosted by Mayo County Council is the questionnaire closes on 31st June 2019

Warm regards
