Shocking? More London lives are shortened by pollution

What's the solution?



Yet we are still driving our children to and from school. Poisoning them

What's the solution?


We want to create traffic exclusion zones around schools, morning and afternoon


No cars, cleaner air and space to play at the start and end of the school day


About us

Play crusaders: promoters, defenders and deliverers of play opportunities for London’s kids – that’s us in a nutshell! But if you want answers to more of those pesky but vital existential questions about us: ‘Why are we here? How did we get here? Who are we, really? What exactly do we do?’, then read on.

Our people

Like a perfectly oiled swing set, London Play’s staff and trustees work together in harmonious symmetry. Ahem.

Our purpose

Londonplay-treehouse_4_sq_big_thumb Londonplay_grass_big_thumb
Play in London is under attack. London Play fights for children to have the space, time and freedom to play.

Our history

Sqaure_history_big_thumb Londonplay_tarmac_4_sq_big_thumb
With 15 years under our belt we’ve ridden a fair few swings, roundabouts and seesaws in the playgrounds of politics - and the politics of play.

Is play a frivolous activity? We don't think so, and nor do our wise and generous funders.
