Play Sufficiency Assessment
The Welsh Government is the first Government in the World to legislate for children's play.
They acknowledge that children have a fundamental right to be able to play and therefore they are committed to improving opportunities for all children and young people to play in safety.
To demonstrate their commitment to driving this agenda forward, in November 2012 the Welsh Government placed a duty on all local authorities to assess the sufficiency of play opportunities in their area and produce an accompanying action plan to improve play opportunities available.
In 2019 each Local Authority had to assess the play opportunities available and write an accompanying action plan. Below is an overview report of the Play Suficiency Assessment process and findings. As part of the process a play survey was undertaken. An overview report of the results of the survey is below
