Play is important in children’s lives, for both its recreational value and for the part that it plays in children’s physical and emotional health and well-being and in their personal development.
The council must assess the sufficiency of play opportunities in its area; and must secure sufficient play opportunities for children, so far as reasonably practicable, having regard to its assessment. The Monmouthshire Play Sufficiency Assessment details our key findings. The Play Action Plan is also contained in this document and sets out the future plan for play in Monmouthshire.
MonLife provides free community play opportunities for children and young people aged 5-11 in the form of summer play schemes in partnership with Community and Town Councils and Torfaen Play Service.
