Calling Children & Young People in Powys

We need to hear about what you think about your right to play. Do you have enough time? Do you have the right space to go? Are you encouraged to play or hang out with friends? What stops you?

We want your views which will help adults to make better conditions for you to play.

We want every child to play every day in Powys. You can help by completing this short survey.
