The 2019 RoSPA Play Safety Conference aims to help play providers develop and maintain quality play spaces that integrate with the natural environment. The value to the child of play space comes not primarily from the fixed equipment and furniture, but from their engagement with the environment. It is essential that such provisions cater for the needs of children, whilst being as safe as necessary.
This event is ideal for Heads of Leisure for a major authority, play area managers and volunteers at a local level. This conference will stimulate and improve your organisation's approach to ensuring play value through natural play.
