York Playspace

Registered Charity Number 505921

At York Playspace, we believe every child matters and that all children are entitled to a healthy, happy and supportive start in life.

What do we do?

We run 'Chill Out Zones' in three areas of York where there are high numbers of vulnerable young children and limited play opportunities to support their development.

Our 'Zones' support children aged 8-13 by providing a safe, fun and welcoming refuge from the streets, exciting games, sports, crafts and activities, opportunities to learn life skills, a hot meal and positive encouragement to avoid anti-social behaviour

During School Holidays we are often commissioned to run mobile playschemes in York, providing a diverse range of crafts, sports, and 'risky' outdoor play activities including den building, campfires, tree climbing and mini-beast hunts.

We promote and provide play opportunities aimed at supporting each aspect of child development and wellbeing (social, emotional, physical and mental) to help each child enjoy their childhood and get the best possible start in life.

Please donate: We are an independent charity and rely entirely on grants and donations to provide this valuable service.
