About Us:

Play Gloucestershire aims to transform children's lives using the power of outdoor play.  We believe that playing outdoors is an essential part of a happy, healthy childhood, and at the heart of a nurturing community.  Our Play Rangers provide fun, adventurous and inclusive play sessions for free after school and during school holidays.

We work throughout the County but have been running community play sessions in Hester's Way, when we can find the funding, for ten years.

We have five main areas of work:

Community Play. Promoting active play in public parks, aimed at children between 7 and 13 years of age.  Running play sessions promotes healthy outdoor play to counteract obesity and the lure of screens; it brings communities together in their play spaces for friendship and fun.

Young Volunteering. Providing volunteering and playwork opportunities for children and young people.  Children can start at 10 years old by helping to set up and tidy up at sessions and can progress through to working for us as Apprentice Play Rangers, gaining valuable skills and experience.

Playful Schools. Developing physical and mental wellbeing through play and encouraging more active playtimes.

Play Nurture. Providing outdoor play for therapeutic benefit in schools and in the school holidays for children experiencing difficulties in their lives. 

Play Advocacy.  Promoting children's play and playful communities.

If you want to see more of what we do, take a look at our Twitter account @Play_Glos and find us on Facebook and Instagram.

With your support we can continue to bring the benefits of play to children, families and communities in the County and can expand Play Nurture to help those with greater need.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Helen Logan
