Playwork North West
Playwork North West is a registered charity originally created by an informal group of local authority play officers in the North West region of England. It now operates in support of a ‘play community’ and is open to anyone interested in play from any sector in the region. We were asked to lead on one of the network’s professional development days, sharing our experiences and findings from completing the play sufficiency assessment in Wrexham.
We then attended a follow up event with a smaller working group to explore the possibility of similar processes being facilitated within the region. Playwork North West is now focussing its efforts on three case study projects based on the principle of play sufficiency.
