Playwork is described by the Welsh Government as a ‘highly skilled profession that enriches and enhances children’s play. It takes place where adults support children’s play but is not driven by prescribed education or care outcomes’. This information sheet provides an introduction to the Welsh Play Sufficiency Duty and is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the principle and process of play sufficiency. It explores the roles of the playwork profession in helping to secure sufficient opportunities for children’s play.

The Play Sufficiency Duty requires adults to pay more attention to the multitude of issues that impact on children’s lives and consider how the ways in which we do things could be changed to better support their right to play. In doing so it raises further questions about the ways in which we, as a society, think about children and their childhoods, how we plan for and design our neighbourhoods, educate and care for our children, the approach taken to adult-child relations, what we expect of parents and how we provide for play.
