Community play briefing 2 – Play Partnerships

This briefing, for local authorities and partner organisations working together to support community involvement in play, explains the value of play partnerships and how they can be improved to better meet the needs of local children and the wider community.

A successful play partnership that brings together local people, voluntary and community sector (VCS) groups, the local authority and other public and private organisations with an interest in play, is one of the key ways in which local communities can be directly involved in making decisions on what play opportunities should be offered in their neighbourhoods; and how and by who these are best provided.

This briefing was produced as part of Play England’s Engaging Communities in Play programme.
