Play Safety Forum

PSF graphicThe Play Safety Forum (PSF) is an independent forum hosted by Play England as part of its work to research, develop and advocate effective policies and good practice for play provision.



The PSF focuses on two key areas:

  • defining the role of risk and challenge in play and play provision.
  • advising on policy in relation to risk and safety in places where children play.

PSF members include national organisations that have an active interest in the development and implementation of good practice in play provision, with particular reference to issues of risk and health and safety.

Play England provides administrative support to the PSF. If you would like to know more about the work of the forum, contact us.

‘Managing risk in play provision’ resources are available here.
