Play sufficiency duty


Wales is the first country in the world to protect in law children’s right to play.

Every local authority in Wales has to complete a Play Sufficiency Assessment (PSA) every three years. The first PSAs were submitted to the Welsh Government in March 2013. Local authorities must also develop Play Action Plans and submit them to the Welsh Government every year, along with progress reports.

Play sufficiency assessment

The play sufficiency assessment should present data about the number of children living in the local authority to enable an assessment of their potential play requirements.

The data should provide information about the numbers of children in different categories that may affect their play requirements.
