Play

Play: a right, not a privilege

All children have a right to play under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Furthermore, in Wales there is a law that specifically protects this right.

A law called the Children and Families (Wales) Measure 2010 says that councils have to assess the opportunities the children in their area have to play and to make sure they’re good enough.

They should use the information from their assessment to improve play opportunities for children in their area.

You should be able to find this on your council’s website.
