This is the website of the International Play Association for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (IPA – EWNI)
We are the national branch of the IPA, whose purpose is to protect, preserve and promote the child’s right to play as a fundamental human right, consistent with Article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
… every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.
… member governments shall respect and promote the right of the child to participate fully in cultural and artistic life and shall encourage the provision of appropriate and equal opportunities for cultural, artistic, recreational and leisure activity.
