Local authorities receive £2m to help make them play friendly, 10/12/2018 [W]

The Welsh Government has made £2m available to local authorities to help deliver opportunities to play for children in their areas.

The money will be used by Local Authorities in Wales to implement their 2018-19 play action plans.

The projects funded include small grants to community councils to provide play provision, equipment for street plan and road closure, Saturday play sessions for young carers aged 7 to 17, amongst others.

Local authorities have a statutory duty to assess the sufficiency of opportunities to play in their areas and then secure their availability. They are also directed to consider the needs of all those in there are; for example, those with disabilities.
