Parkour UK signs a letter to The Times on the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill

Parkour UK has signed a letter, published in The Times on 16th July, coordinated by Play England & Play Wales to voice our concerns over the proposals to alter the definition of ‘anti-social behaviour’.

The proposed legislation contradict’s the United Nations Article 31 (Leisure, play and culture): Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities. Rather than tackling the root issue of anti-social behaviour, this may serve as another barrier stopping children/young people from engaging in recreational activities outdoors, the park or other public spaces, further jeopardising the physical and mental health of children/young people.
