Funders and Partners

Home > Funders and Partners

A big thank you to the funders and partners who are helping us to grow the street play movement and make playing out a normal, healthy part of children’s lives.

Esmée Fairbairn

Esmée Fairbairn Foundation has funded Playing Out through a three-year grant to support the growth and scaling up of street play across the UK. We are especially pleased to have support from a funder who understands social change.

The Tudor Trust

The Tudor Trust supports positive change in communities and has awarded Playing Out a two-year grant towards core costs.

Network for Social Change

The Network has supported Playing Out through a number of small grants to build this website and online community and to support resident ‘activators’ across the UK.

Bristol City Council

Bristol City Council have supported Playing Out in Bristol since 2010, providing policy support, funding for our direct work with streets and specific projects.

People's Health Trust

An Active Communities Grant is funding a pilot project to enable playing out and community-building in two Bristol high-rise estates.

University of Bristol

Bristol University carried out an evaluation of the playing out model from 2013-16 and is a partner on the Bristol Child-Friendly City project.

Cosy has generously sponsored some Playing Out kit boxes to enable residents on more streets across the UK to organise playing out sessions. They support the aim of enabling children to play out freely and safely in the street as well as in other spaces.

If you’re interested in working with Playing Out or supporting the street play movement, please do get in touch.  We’d love to hear from you.
