Play Sufficiency Assessment


Play Sufficiency Assessment

Section 11 of the Children and Families (Wales) Measure 2010 places a duty on all Local Authorities across Wales to assess and secure sufficient play opportunities for their children in their area.

The Play Sufficiency duty comes as part of the Welsh Government’s anti poverty agenda which recognises that children can have a poverty of experience, opportunity and aspiration, and that this can affect all children from all backgrounds.

The first part of the duty which requires all Local Authorities to assess the sufficiency of play opportunities came into effect on 1st November 2012.

The whole Carmarthenshire team are an asset to us childminders and I know from speaking to other childminders in the UK that they do not have such a fantastic team behind them. I could not recommend this enough for anyone who would like to become a childminder in Carmarthenshire.
