Children's Right to Play

Play is a fundamental right and is enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1990), to which the UK is a signatory. This means that every child and young person in the UK has a right to engage in play and recreational activities.

Welsh Government formally adopted the UNCRC in 2004, and are committed to making the principles a reality. Article 31 (Leisure, play and culture): Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities.

On the 1st February 2013 the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child adopted a General Comment that clarifies the meaning and importance of Article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The aim of the General Comment is to raise the importance of the Article and increase the accountability of the Countries that have signed up to the convention
