How might we enable tamariki and whānau to move and play more?
At Healthy Families East Cape we are committed to creating healthier environments where we live, learn, work and play. We want to increase the opportunities for tamariki and whānau to access quality play experiences, spaces and opportunities in Te Tairāwhiti and the Ōpōtiki district. To better understand different communities’ perceptions and experiences of play, and what helps or gets in the way of children’s play, Healthy Families East Cape are partnering with local commmunity changemakers and local leaders to help them hear from a diverse range of people from across the region.
“We want all of Aotearoa to enjoy health promoting social and physical environments that enable healthy food and physical activity choices, being smokefree, reducing the harm from alcohol and increasing mental health resilience and wellbeing.”
