Play Wales with local authority play sufficiency officers


Eirias Park rugby ground, Colwyn Bay

Having the chance to play is an important part of a happy and healthy childhood for every child.

The Welsh Government has legislated in support of children’s play. The Children and Families (Wales) Measure 2010 places a statutory duty on local authorities to assess and, as far as is reasonably practicable, secure sufficient opportunities for children to play.

So many policy decisions impact on children’s ability to play. Sufficiency and quality of play also impact on the outcomes for other policy areas.

This conference will:

  • provide an overview of the statutory duty
  • share practice from across the region and the rest of Wales in relation to play sufficiency
  • contribute to a shared understanding of play sufficiency across relevant local authority departments
  • offer an opportunity to work and plan together within your local authority and with others in similar roles across the region.

The conference is aimed at those operating at a strategic level in subject areas which have an influence on play including:

  • public health
  • education
  • planning
  • roads/transport
  • leisure.

It is for colleagues working in Anglesey, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd and Wrexham.
