Playright believes in providing children with opportunities to engage in challenging and adventurous play, where they can encounter hazards and take risks. This approach is believed to contribute to their physical, emotional, and intellectual development. However, when it comes to developing and managing an open access play space, it is crucial to prevent unintentional injuries to children while still allowing for a certain degree of managed risk.

To effectively manage and assess risk and benefits in play spaces, Anne Marden Playright Academy (AMPA) has invited Mr. David Yealy, the Head of Play Safety at The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), to develop a workshop.
