About

Project Play provides displaced children with safe spaces, where they can play and simply be children. Our team of nine volunteers reach over 100 children across five accommodation centres, running sessions six times a week. 

We believe in the power of play as the best possible means to mitigate the impact of trauma for children on the move. These children have fled their home countries and survived dangerous journeys over land and sea in search of safety. They have proven their strength and now deserve the chance for respite and release. Project Play endeavours to provide them with this chance. 

Project Play offre aux enfants exilés une chance de jouer, apprendre et être simplement des enfants pendant un temps. Notre équipe de neuf bénévoles intervient auprès de plus d’une centaine d’enfants, six fois par semaine.
Le jeu est un des meilleurs moyens d’atténuer l’impact des traumatismes expérimentés par les enfants exilés. Ceux-ci ont été forcés de quitter leur foyer, et ont survécu à un périple dangereux à la recherche d’une terre d’asile. Ils devraient avoir le droit au repos, à la sécurité et à une enfance normale.

Event details

Help us maintain and grow our service!

As a grassroots organisation, we need as much help and support from people like you to keep operations running.

To continue to provide children with safe spaces and the chance to play, we need to cover the costs of fuel to and from their living spaces, resources for our sessions and accommodation expenses for our extremely dedicated team of long-term volunteers. 

Please donate what you can, just £1 could buy us some sticky tape to use in a craft session, or £100 would cover fuel for a week's worth of sessions! 

Notre association est en constante évolution, et nous avons besoin de tout le soutien qu’il est possible d’avoir. Afin de continuer à apporter notre aide aux enfants exilés, il nous est nécessaire de payer pour l’essence des véhicules et le logement des bénévoles qui restent plusieurs mois sur place.

Même 1€ peut faire une différence, en nous permettant par exemple d’acheter du scotch pour une activité créative. 100€ couvre les dépenses d’une semaine d’essence !
