Licketyspit are early years theatre and play specialists working with children; teachers; families and partners to transform lives; empowering and connecting participants through children's human rights based inclusive drama-led play and food. Licketyspit's Children & Families Network (CFN) nurtures and sustains relationships with and among a community of families in Glasgow & Edinburgh through online engagement; resources and ideas. Our work prioritises disadvantaged children and families.
From 30th May we will be starting open online imaginary play sessions for families, every Saturday at 10am. We will also be starting closed community sessions for families in Govan (Tuesdays), Milton (Wednesdays) and Easterhouse (Thursdays) at 3.30pm, from 19th May. All sessions will take place through Zoom. To find out more or sign up please visit www.licketyspit.com/bppg-online
Licketyspit will deliver a framework of quality online engagement for/with families with children under-twelve. Though rooted in dialogue/provision for our currently 800 member families; Licketyspit's Children & Families Network (CFN) is open to all. Many CFN families are EAL including refugees. The majority live in SIMD 1 & 2 in Glasgow.
We will also be supporting our Storyplay Schools (Storyplay supports schools addressing poverty associated attainment gap to foster a children's human rights based language-rich culture across a whole school community.) with online engagement/creative learning resources. Licketyspit's high quality resources can potentially be shared Glasgow-wide to support distance learning; health & well-being. We are seeking funds to enable us to offer Licketyspit Playcard sets; children's books and art materials to disadvantaged families via food banks/partners.

We think there would be a value in also connecting this work with older people who can access the internet to combat social isolation and anxiety.
