The purpose of these provisions is to provide staffed play opportunities for children in the absence of their parents. Children are not restricted in their movements, other than where related to safety matters and are not prevented from coming and going as and when they wish. Children have the freedom of choice as to what range of play activity they wish to undertake and with whom they play. With the above in mind, please note it is not a childcare provision.

All children under the age of 8 must be dropped off and collected by a responsible adult.

If your child needs support to attend a Play Club or for further information please contact the Play Team.

Specialist Provision

The play service provides 1-1 support for children with disabilities and behavioural needs to attend community play provision. Over 160 children are provided with 1-1 support each year. By working together with partners, play staff are trained to provide both personal care and support to children with varying needs. Support is provided to children aged 5+ to attend play clubs, playschemes and specialist play projects. To register your child for 1-1 play support please complete the 1-1 Play Support Application Form and return it andrea.sysum@torfaen.gov.uk or alternatively return the form by post to Torfaen Play Service, Old Abersychan Library , Brynteg, Abersychan NP4 7BG.

Play and Wellbeing Family Sessions

Torfaen Play Service are working in partnership with Sports Development and Families First to deliver a series of health and well-being sessions to families in Torfaen. Families have been identified or signposted to join the 10 week sessions where families are supporting to increase health and well-being levels.

The parents/carers are supported by trained coaches to partake in physical activity and assess their wellbeing. Whilst this takes place, playworkers are engaging with the children in play activities which encourage physical activity. By the end of the 10 weeks families would of increased fitness and well-being levels and will be supported to continue and sustain healthier lifestyles. 5 families from Torfaen are currently engaging in the project at Fairwater Leisure Centre. For a referral form please contact andrea.sysum@torfaen.gov.uk.

We run a monthly forum for Dads (male carers) and their children. The session runs the first Saturday in every month from Ashley House Gym, Pontnewydd, Cwmbran, NP44 1AN from 10:00 - 11:30. The sessions allow Dads (male carers) to spend quality play time with their children and a chance to meet other Dads.
