The Right to play workshop aims to raise awareness about the right to play as well as empower children and teenagers to advocate for better opportunities for playing and meeting up with their friends.
The workshop is designed for playworkers, participation workers, youth workers and school staff to facilitate in schools and other structured settings. It has been designed to be used by anyone with a working knowledge of how to support and facilitate children’s play using a playwork approach. This could be a playworker, play development worker or member of teaching staff.
It can be delivered on its own, but it is also a useful way to start engagement with a school. The workshop includes a range of resources that can be used during and after the session – from a workshop session plan, to a poster for children to share what they have learned, to learner outcomes for use in schools.
