The Play Forum

Terms of Reference:

The Play Forum is facilitated by Hastings Borough Council’s Play Development Officer. The Forum is a network of play and childcare providers from statutory and voluntary groups and organisations that share an interest in play. The Forum meets quarterly to discuss current issues and share information.

Each member of the Play Forum brings different skills and views to the group and the guidance it provides is invaluable. The Play Forum also helps to represent the wider play community and promotes the importance of sharing best practice and working together towards shared aims. The Forum helps to map local provision and highlight gaps, aims to ensure best use is made of limited resources and that play information is shared across Hastings and St Leonards. The Forum seeks to involve children, young people and families with decisions that affect them, and act upon play needs indentified by them.

The Forum helps to monitor and deliver Hastings Borough Council's Play Strategy and Play Space Strategy and partners support the delivery of our annual, large scale Play Day events.

If you would be interested in joining the Play Forum and/or would be interested in attending meetings or receiving information and minutes from meetings please send your details to Laura Beerling at  You can also use the response slip attached to the following document:
