The play and place issue includes:
- Play, rights and place: making the links
- Including disabled children in play provision
- Serennu Children’s Centre opening its grounds for play
- Teenagers’ play needs and why we should care – written by social, place and play researcher and practitioner Claire Edwards
- RPlace too – new app for children and teenagers to improve community play spaces
- Making space for girls – written by Make Space for Girls co-founder Susannah Walker
- Latest update on our Community Play Ambassador project
- Workforce development – new playwork course and qualifications and an interview with a local authority play sufficiency lead officer.
