In 2002 Play Wales wrote a rationale for children's play and play provision that led to the drafting and adoption of a Play Policy for Wales.

The rationale contains:

  • A definition of children's play
  • The importance of play in children's lives
  • The benefits of play for communities and society
  • The environment for children's play in Wales (2002)
  • Benefits that arise from a national policy for play
  • A methodology 
  • Extracts from the State of Play report to the Assembly Government (2000)
  • Extracts from The First Claim ... a framework for playwork quality assessment (2001)
