Play Partnership

The Play Partnership meets twice a year to discuss all aspects of work that impacts on children’s play.  Where possible the meetings will generate discussion and debate on key themes/issues on children and young people’s rights to play . When appropriate views gathered will be used to inform the on-going development and review of the Bath and North East Somerset Play Strategy (this will include any future commissioning intentions or areas that require focused fundraising in order to respond to emerging gaps in provision).

(All administration and servicing of this group will be carried out by the Strategic Development Officer for Play and the Playwork Administrator on 01225 396240)
