About us

Play England’s vision is for England to be a country where everybody can fully enjoy their right to play throughout their childhood and teenage years, as set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 31 and the Charter for Children’s Play.

To achieve this vision, we aim to ensure that:

  • All children and young people have the freedom — time, space, permission and opportunity — to play throughout their childhood and teenage years;
  • All residential neighbourhoods are child-friendly places where children and young people can regularly play outside; and
  • Everyone is aware of the importance of play — outdoors and indoors — as part of children and young people’s daily lives.
