Play Therapy UK exists to further the good practice of therapeutic work with children. This includes improving children's wellbeing as well as alleviating behaviour and mental health problems.

Accreditation for PTUK was renewed with Conditions of Accreditation for the period of 11 April 2021 to 11 April 2022.

Accreditation was renewed by a Panel following a targeted review to look at Standards 2, 4, 5, 7, 9 and 11 in greater depth.

The following Conditions must be met within one year of the publication of this report:

  1. Develop contingency plans for the continued operations and leadership of PTUK should the current Chief Executive leave their role. These should include how PTUK will ensure that persons named in the succession plan are equipped for the role of Chief Executive. (paragraph 7.13)
  2. Strengthen arrangements for the governance and oversight of leadership decisions affecting PTUK. This could include: expanding the Board of Directors so there is more than one Director; setting out clear delegation of responsibilities and decisions to the Senior Management Team within PTUK’s frameworks; enhancing the powers of non-shareholding members at the AGM; and strengthening the independence and robustness of the BCTIWC’s oversight of PTUK. (paragraph 7.13)
  3. Publish clear details of the relationship between PTUK, APAC and the BCTIWC so that it is clear to the public who has ultimate responsibility for key functions and how to raise a concern about any aspect of their work. (paragraph 7.13)
