This includes practitioners within playwork, childcare, early years and youth work. It is also open to other professionals who use play, such as hospitals, prisons, refuges and residential care. The survey is open to both paid and voluntary staff.

The research has been approved by Swansea University’s College of Human and Health Sciences Research Ethics Committee.
