Research

From reducing pain levels and anxiety to fostering a sense of autonomy, our research shows that keeping play at the heart of a child's treatment can have a substantial, positive effect. 

We work with those at the heart of health play services to build on our knowledge of play, supporting us to continually improve the lives of ill children, their families and carers.
