How you can help

Volunteering can be a great way to gain experience, make a difference and have a great time in the process. We need help in a number of areas, from practical support offering help during PlayingOut sessions; lending a helping hand at Forest School; mucking in at the Adventure Playground or helping out with fundraising…. We need your support.

Working in the field of Playwork takes a certain kind of character and it certainly isn’t for everyone.  It is a highly skilled profession and requires individuals to put themselves into the shoes of even the most challenging of children. However, we offer volunteers training and support to help prepare them for the complex world of children’s play.

If that’s not for you though we 100% need your support with fundraising.  If you’d like to host an event from cake sale or coffee morning; race the Parish Walk or end to end; or run up Everest in a pair of budgie smugglers…. Do it for Play! We can provide you with the necessary sponsorship forms and some ideas for an event if you’re creative juices aren’t flowing.

Or maybe you’d like to help out at one of our future fundraising or awareness events… its completely up to you how heavily and how regularly your involved!

We work with some vulnerable children and as such all staff and volunteers are legally required to complete a DBS and suitability checks.
