The Playwork Principles Scrutiny Group

Experienced playworkers and playwork trainers from around the UK were invited to be honest brokers to read the consultation responses and revise the proposals to best represent the majority view. Play Wales administrated the process under the Group's instruction.

How was the Group chosen?

A number of the group were invited to take part, and then asked to invite others so that the range and diversity of playworkers and regions was represented.

Who are the Scrutiny Group?

Since the process of consultation was finished and SkillsActive endorsed the Principles, some members of the Scrutiny Group have moved on from the posts they then held. We have listed them in the same way we did in 2004 to show the representation at the time the process took place.
