“As a shielding family with two kids of 5 and 7 who spent 110 consecutive days completely in the house, we loved the space to run and climb trees in safety.”
“The Playful Shielder’s project made us feel considered, remembered and cared for.”
“It was so lovely to have the space to ourselves without that awful stomach clenching worry when you arrive somewhere and it’s busy. Our son loved it.”
“It’s just so nice to be outside and feel safe and not have to keep an eye out for other people. It made me feel normal.”
“This is clearly a flagship project and I hope many other spaces across the country are able to be used by shielding families and their kids.”
