Do you want to be equipped with the tools to help secure the future for your playground? If so, here's your chance - please apply to take part in the final year of our Play Works project. 

We're excited to announce that applications have reopened for London-based adventure playgrounds to participate in the Play Works training programme from September 2017. You can find out more by reading our FAQs and download an application form to apply. 

Now well into its second year, Play Works has trained and mentored staff from eight adventure playgrounds from across the capital, supporting them to identify and measure the unique benefits each brings to their community.

So far, playworkers from Lambeth, Walthamstow, Haringey, Richmond, Hammersmith & Fullham and Islington have been funded to attend specially designed workshops, increasing their knowledge of and confidence in monitoring and evaluation.Several have already used their new skills and data gathered to support successful funding applications. 

Deadline for applications is 31st May 2017.

Not based in London or not able to attend the workshops in person?

Why not apply to trial our online toolkit? We're looking for nine adventure playgrounds to test out the online resources and guides over the next year. These playgrounds will also receive remote support from the Play Works Research and Evaluation mentor. More information including how to apply can be found here (link to one pager).

Deadline for toolkit applications is 15th May 2017.
