Enhance your team's community spirit by playing a game for Lifestart Play for Kids.

In every person a child is hidden who wants to play.

Lifestart Play for Kids aims to raise awareness in our community about the value and importance of play in all our lives.

Host an event with family, friends, in your workplace or club. You can play a game any time from August to December 2016 to raise funds in support of inclusion for children and young people living with disability. Play for Kids represents a unique teambuilding opportunity to get involved in playing a game to build morale and encourage team spirit while contributing to the learning and development of children and young people living with disability.

Play is an integral part of a child's growth and development and families of children with disability or delay and Play for Kids provides the opportunity for the community to engage and be part of Lifestart's mission to enhance the lives of young children living with disability through play.

Play for Kids enables us to get a strong message out that play is one of the best ways for all children to learn and develop, especially children with disability or delay. Play is the bridge for children to be included in our community.

Lifestart's vision is that Play for Kids events promote the value of play for the whole community.
