First Minister for Wales, Carwyn Jones has announced a new Welsh Government Cabinet.

The Cabinet is the main decision-making body of the Welsh Government. It gives direction to the work of the whole organisation.

Huw Irranca-Davies has been appointed as Minister for Children and Social Care – this includes responsibility for children’s play. The Minister’s role is as deputy to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services, Vaughan Gething.

Play Wales says:

‘We look forward to working with the new Minister and Welsh Government officials to continue to advocate widely for children’s play and support local authorities and third sector organisations to make real progress promoting and protecting the right to play. As the first country in the world to legislate for children’s play, Welsh Government has taken an international lead – together we will continue to advocate to make the right to play a reality for all children.’
