Summer Big Give: Sponsor a Playworker


The Big Give Summer Challenge Starts Today!

We have teamed up with the Childhood Trust for the Big Give Summer Challenge 2018 to help fund our team of sessional play workers for our holiday playschemes. As the UK’s biggest match funding event the Big Give is an exciting opportunity for us to make the most out of the support we receive – donations during Big Give week will be doubled by the Childhood Trust - so can have twice the impact!

Our playschemes offer a variety of enriching and thoughtful activities to children and young people aged four to twelve in the local community. This year over 60 children will attend our summer playscheme where they will be able to explore, play, be creative and learn in a safe and nurturing space.

We have made our playschemes accessible and affordable to parents to ensure that those most in need are able to access our support and offer free places where needed. This means that every parent can be reassured that they have access to a safe and stimulating environment during the school holidays. Many of the children that come to our playschemes are from single parent working families, suffer from food insecurity or have no one around to care for them when school is closed.

Our playschemes offer a range of play and educational activities that support childrens wellbeing and development. For example children attending playschemes can join in on cooking sessions where they learn how to make healthy and nutritious recipes; art sessions where they learn expressive skills; physical activities and sports are also a large part of the day. On top of the activities we provide we offer trips, clubs,  healthy meals and snacks, advice and guidance to parents and practical support in order to give the best start that we can to the children and young people who come to us.
