About this project
Place2Play is an inclusive family “pop up sports” programme utilising parks and open spaces in 15 London wide deprived areas. In Ealing we will be delivering in Year 1 in Acton in Acton Park, South Acton Park and Trinity Way Open Space. Activities coordinated by our Playleaders will include a wide range of sport stations (Playstations) for all ages and abilities but the main themes will be fun socialising and learning new skills through inclusive sport challenges. Parents and children (5 – 11 year olds) will be encouraged to participate in every aspect of every session. Parents will be taught new skills and ways in which they can take part in the same games with their families at home. A Place2Play website will also have a selection of online tips and games that both children and parents can interact and enjoy.
How you can help
We are looking for volunteers to help our coaches across the Acton sites. You might be a parent or a local resident with experience in sports & play. Or might might just be keen to help and develop your own skills and CV. We can provide DBS checks, training and accredited qualifications to work alongside our experienced playleaders.
We are also looking for companies to support Place2Play, which might be equipment, staff or funding. Help us transform 15 parks in London's most deprived areas into inspirational family play parks. You could be the Place2Play corporate partner.
Place2Play will reach over 500 deprived families each year and we will support over thousands of Londoners to be more active together at home and outdoors.
This is a chance for your company to be the main partner in a groundbreaking and innovative new programme which will inspire a new generation to enjoy physical activity as a family. Place2Play will provide exciting and unique CSR & branding opportunities . This will also include an online platform for children and parents.
We also provide a wide range of volunteering opportunities as part of Place2Play. This can include volunteering days for your staff at our sessions or supporting us in other capacities such as finance, marketing and fundraising.
