Play Works (page 2 of 2)
NEWSFLASH!!! NOV 2018: PLAY WORKS II IS GO!!
We are delighted to announce that this popular and highly successful programme is about to be taken to the next level thanks to two more years of funding from City Bridge Trust.
Play Works I kicked off in summer 2015 thanks to a £138,000 grant from the City of London Corporation’s charity, City Bridge Trust. London Play worked with 12 adventure playgrounds and other play projects across London helping them to monitor and evaluate the impact of what they do and better make their case for survival. Play Works II will continue and amplify this vital work and we are now seeking adventure playgrounds to join the programme from January 2019.
‘Austerity’ has hit London’s adventure playgrounds hard. Two iconic sites - at Battersea and Brent - have closed in the past couple of years and many of the capital's 80 or so other unique adventure playgrounds are locked in battles for survival.
