Play on Wheels works in partnership with communities to increase children’s access to high quality play by putting play knowledge into practice and building on community strengths and assets. We do this by working with children, adults and practitioners to decide how developing their play resources and environment can support them to improve their lives.

Free, self-directed play with loose parts is a key part of our approach since it strengthens children’s confidence in taking their own decisions and managing risk which builds resilience and improves well-being.

We hold open play sessions (normally during the holidays) in streets, parks, green spaces and community centres to encourage local families to explore free play and to connect with local services and resources. These are all advertised on our Facebook pages.
