1. States Parties recognize the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.

2. States Parties shall respect and promote the right of the child to participate fully in cultural and artistic life and shall encourage the provision of appropriate and equal opportunities for cultural, artistic, recreational and leisure activity.

Fair Play needs your help - just 5.00
 
We don't need a great deal to do our work but the truth is, if you want us to be effective, we have to ask you for a small donation.   (In fact, we've checked and we actually have spent under 250 in the past year to bring you: this site, 2xc weekly FP New, weekly Research page, added Publications and Library items. updated Facebook and Twitter at least 4x weekly, made Freedom of Information requests, written to Ministers, MPs, Councils etc - and reached many groups and people.  Imagine what we could do with 2500!   Volunteer effort = worth at least 24,000 in the same period btw.)

Scrapstores (or Resource Centres) are a marvellous way both to use recycled materials and products and also provide the means to fire the imaginations of children.   Each marker gives contact details for the scrapstore in question.
