Play England is delighted to be jointly organising ‘A manifesto for play’ – a play policy roadshow with the Playwork Foundation.

Forums are taking place across the country to:

  • consult with the play sector and develop key policy asks to form a manifesto for play
  • coordinate campaigning for better play provision,
  • share latest thinking/developments in play

Policy areas to be developed include:

  • Design and environment
  • Staffed play provision
  • Qualifications and training
  • Schools

Thank you to everyone who has participated so far!
