We has asked our members what they value from being a Play Wales member. Here is a selection of the comments we received:
'From events to conferences, support for training and the development of P3, Play Wales and their friendly knowledgeable staff have been a great resource and support for my role as Play Development Officer in RCT.'
'Shared vision and support from a national play organisation, joint events and meetings and access to updated information and training. The staff are available for support not only at a national level but also locally for play and development staff.'
'To consider how to affect policy in the interests of play and the health and well being of children in outdoor spaces. To allow the priorities of Play Wales to shape my own professional thinking and practice.'
'Primarily knowing that we are supporting the national organisation for children's play and benefiting from the work they do as a result.'
'It allows me to keep up with all of the latest play news and legislation.'
'Play Wales has been pivotal in ensuring that play is on the national agenda, evidence of which is contained within Wales's Play Policy Implementation Plan and perhaps more importantly [play] is specifically mentioned within child poverty documentation as being of a direct benefit to children and young people who live in poverty.'
'Access to first rate national conferences and training events, particularly the prestigious IPA event held in Cardiff. Again putting Play on the map within Wales.'
'I value the bi-monthly e-bulletins highlighting whats new on the Play Wales website also reduced conference and publication rates and above all sharing mutual support, best practice and information which in return is our way of supporting childrens right to play both locally and nationally.'
'Sharing best practice and Information, being part of a national organisation supporting children's right to play.'
'To keep abreast of issues that affect children's play, not just in Wales, but across the UK and internationally.'
