To support projects which encourage local people to be active, learn and play together.
Place2Play is our innovative, new, inclusive, free family “pop up play” programme across London parks & open spaces in 15 deprived areas. Our aim is to teach and support parents & carers to play together outside. Place2Play gets inactive families trying fun challenges. We will create exciting opportunities to be active & enjoy physical activity while learning new skills through local park challenges & online resources. Activities coordinated by our Playleaders will include a wide range of sport & play activity stations for all ages and abilities. From mini parkour to head tennis, there is something for everyone. Kids and parents will learn & develop new skills to improve week to week, & parents & volunteers will be trained to support Playleaders. If you live in Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, Wandsworth, Brent or Ealing, please pledge your support & help us bring Place2Play to a park near you! See below the full list of park locations & map view in Gallery.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our aim is to provide disadvantaged families a safe, fun and affordable “Place2Play” where they can enjoy a wide range of sports whilst interacting with their families & community. This project aims to encourage families to build physical activity into their everyday routine & allow the whole family to feel the benefits of being active regularly. Parks are “the place to play” in this programme as we want families to feel at home in their local open space & utilise existing facilities whilst enjoying a brand new programme of activities. Place2Play will allow participants to take an active role ithrough the online platform & share ideas for being more active as a family. This project will achieve: - Create an environment for families to enjoy physical activity together - Introducing inclusive adapted sports to families - Make Improvements in both physical and mental health - Fun online games for all to play and practice at home geared around the park challenges

We will upskill 5 parents each year from each borough with a view to them taking a lead role in each location to ensure the continuation of regular activities in the chosen parks. On a long term basis Place2Play will inspire behaviour change in individuals, families and communities to ensure deprived areas in London are more active and healthy! Parks will become hubs for physical activity & daily physical activity will become the norm in these areas. For families & young people who want to transition into competitive or more structured sport we will work alongside clubs to provide pathways.
