Play Wales, has worked with Save the Children’s Travelling Ahead project, to develop the Good practice guide for play and early years: Developing and managing Gypsy and Traveller sites.
The good practice guide has been designed for anyone who takes responsibility for or is involved in managing or developing new and existing Gypsy Traveller sites.
It is designed to provide clear and concise information to support local authorities to consider and include play and early years provision when developing new and existing Gypsy and Traveller sites. It contains specific information intended to help understand and address particular areas of concern. It also provides practical, step-by-step tools, templates and models of successful provision.
We established and consulted with a focus group of providers during the drafting process and used their experiences to develop the models and address the most significant issues. Travelling Ahead asked children and young people at their regional forum meetings about their ideas for improving play and leisure facilities on sites.
