Children & Young People Survey – Impact Of Covid-19


Calling all children and young people aged 5-18 across Northern Ireland – your voice matters!


At PlayBoard we know how important play is to children. We also know that Covid-19 has turned our world upside down. We want to make things better for you, especially as we begin to do the things we used to do, but maybe in slightly different ways.


We want to know what you think, because you matter and your play experiences matter too!


Once you tell us we will make sure that the people in charge (the government) know what you think about these important things. Don’t worry – we won’t tell them who you are, just what you think so you can tell us whatever you feel without being worried.


You can take part in the survey at where you can also upload a story, poem, drawing, photo etc. if you would like to share your thoughts or the things you have been getting up to during lockdown that way.


As a thank you for taking part we will be holding a prize draw with the winner getting a special playful prize.
