The aim of our projects is to support and deliver our vision of a society where all children have the freedom and space to play throughout childhood. We work with national organisations, the government and the play sector to pioneer ways of improving access, increasing capacity and ensuring quality play opportunities for all children and young people in England.

Current projects:

Street Play

The Street Play project’s vision is for every child to have the freedom to regularly play actively and independently in front of or near their own front door, contributing to a healthy lifestyle.

Past projects:

Play England has successfully delivered a number of high profile programmes to extend and improve children’s play across the UK. We have delivered major government contracts and supported every local authority in England to produce and implement local play strategies.
