Have your Say: Play and Recreation for Children and Young People in Mayo
Dear Parent / Guardian,

Mayo County Council are conducting research into the play and recreation needs of children and young people (0 - 18 Years) in Mayo to develop a county wide Play and Recreation Strategy.

As part of this work we are consulting with as many children, young people and adults as possible across the county. Mayo County Council (MCC) invites you to join us in developing our Play and Recreation Strategy.

You can contribute by taking part in this online survey that will inform and shape the strategy which will have a key focus on supporting children and young people ‘playing outside’.

Mayo County Council is keen to get as many views as possible so we can reflect your opinions within the strategy. This will inform and influence an action plan aimed at improving and increasing outdoor play and recreation opportunities across the county.

By clicking 'Submit Response' at the end, you give us permission to analyse and include your responses in our results. After you click Submit, you will no longer be able to go back and change any of your answers.
