Opening streets for play – a new toolkit
The Opening streets for play toolkit is designed to provide clear and concise information about street play for local authorities and their partners in Wales. It contains information intended to help understand and address issues of concern and it provides practical, step-by-step tools and templates to support street play to happen.
This toolkit is intended to help local authorities to develop policies and procedures to enable resident-led street play projects in their areas. It will also be useful for housing associations, school communities, community workers and local residents to understand the opportunities and challenges.
To develop this toolkit we worked with Playing Out – the organisation that supports street play throughout the UK. The toolkit and the resources are informed by the Cardiff Street Play Pilot Programme, as well as the UK-wide street play movement and refers to Playing Out’s Toolkit for Local Authorities.
