This toolkit has been designed as a facilitative guide to help you plan and deliver the play advocacy message.

The toolkit can be used by a diverse range of advocates, e.g. childcare settings, schools, youth clubs, play workers, teachers, planners, community workers or parents – whoever wants to advocate for play.
