In 2024 we would like to deliver 4 FREE Community Playday events across West Oxfordshire. From 2012 to 2023 we have delivered over 140 events across Oxfordshire which have been attended by over 150,000 ‘guests’. The key selling point of our project is that all of our events offer both FREE Entrance and FREE Activities to ensure an Inclusion for ALL. The 4 locations we have chosen for our 2024 events are as follows; Witney - The biggest population centre in West Oxfordshire Carterton / RAF Brize Norton - Bringing Armed Forces and Civilian Families within the local Community together Chipping Norton - According to the 2019 Indices of Deprivation, one area of the town (to the south west) ranks within the 10% most deprived nationally on the Education, Skills and Training domain and within the 20% most deprived on Income Deprivation Affecting Children (child poverty). Eynsham - According to End Child Poverty 2019 estimates, Eynsham ward had around 18% of children living in poverty

What we'll deliver:

  • Witney Play & Activity Day 2024
  • Carterton / RAF Brize Norton Play & Activity Day 2024
  • Chipping Norton Play & Activity Day 2024
  • Eynsham Play & Activity Day 2024

Why it's a great idea:

Steps to get it done:

  • Delivery of Witney Play & Activity Day 2024
  • Delivery of Carterton / RAF Brize Norton Play & Activity Day 2024
  • Delivery of Chipping Norton Play & Activity Day 2024
  • Delivery of Eynsham Play & Activity Day 2024

These events were already vitally important following the savage cuts previously imposed on Children and Families services in Oxfordshire (including the closure of local Children’s Centres and Youth Services) during Austerity in terms of providing activities and information on services available to local families. These needs were further exacerbated by the issues caused by Covid-19. In addition to all this Children, Young People and their Families now face an unprecedented Cost of Living Crisis. It is of no surprise to anyone then that we are now seeing unprecedented increases in children’s mental health problems and loneliness, alongside reduced physical activity. Play is vital to children’s physical and mental health and development, and happens when children and young people follow their own ideas and interests, in their own way, and for their own reasons. Play provides opportunities for social interaction and physical activity and reduces children’s stress and anxiety.
