Focus on play: community and town councils


This briefing for community and town councils provides information about how to support better opportunities for children to play in their communities. Community and town councils, and therefore, councillors, in Wales are well placed to be play champions for the communities in which they live and serve.

It features information about:

  • National and international policy relating to play
  • Developing and managing spaces for play
  • Making time for play
  • Ensuring permission for play.

Although this issue of Focus on play is aimed at community and town councils it provides useful information about how we can all contribute to providing time, space, and permission for children’s play in our communities.
