Aberdeen Play Forum


Play is crucially important for children. But It’s not just vital for their own fun and enjoyment; it also has a critical role in child development. Regular time spent playing will help children to learn skills they will use when they are older, like using their imagination, learning how to negotiate and interacting with others around them.

This is why Aberlour is part of Aberdeen Play Forum.

what is Aberdeen play Forum?

Aberdeen Play Forum was set up to act as a strategic voice across Aberdeen. Its role is to increase play opportunities across the city, by working with public, private, voluntary and community organisations.
