Play Sufficiency Case Studies

Throughout Wales, progress is being made by local authorities and their partners to respond to Welsh Government’s ground breaking Play Sufficiency Duties.

The case studies present innovative solutions to support local authorities secure sufficient play opportunities in line with the Matters identified in Wales – a Play Friendly Country statutory guidance.

Case studies have been reviewed against a range of criteria including to what extent the example:

  • Builds on existing practice, partnerships or approaches
  • Is underpinned by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and General Comment 17 on Article 31
  • Works to the principles of partnership working and collaboration
  • Maximises resources
  • Has been developed and implemented in consultation, participation and engagement.
