“We have worked in partnership with PEEK for many years – working together to improve the life chances of children and young people initially in Glasgow’s East End but that great work is being extended across the city for all to benefit. By joining forces we are witnessing the real impact that PEEK is having on our communities and young people. PEEK offer a wide and varied range of opportunities free to our young people including volunteering, play, creative arts.
I am very proud of the ethos and commitment amongst their staff to developing young people, communities and providing opportunities for all. The research about play having a positive impact on raising attainment is very encouraging and active play will be firmly embedded in Glasgow’s Improvement Challenge over the next few years. “The Glasgow Active Play programme is about early intervention – changing the mind-sets of parents and children early leads to greater physical activity later in life, going outdoors more and leading a healthier life – all through play. Anyone can play! I am passionate about doing all that we can to improve the life chances of each and every one of Glasgow’s children.” Maureen McKenna, Executive Director of Education, Glasgow City Council
