Summary of report content

Healthwatch Sheffield funded Pitsmoor Adventure Playground to undertake engagement with their users to understand their health and social care needs. Around 20 children participated.

The conversation coved the following topics

  • Senses
  • Eating healthily
  • Looking after their teeth
  • Being happy and staying active

The project concluded that:

  • Giving the children opportunities for active play helps them to think positively about this in terms of its relationship to happiness and socialising;
  • They were able to talk to the children about keeping healthy, staying active, and eating well through our wider play activities.
  • They can provide important information to the children about ways to keep well (like brushing your teeth) alongside creative exercises to keep their attention;
