Make your street a place to play


Do you want children to be able to play freely outside their own front door?

We are a parent and resident led movement restoring children’s freedom to play out in the streets and spaces where they live, for their health, happiness and sense of belonging. Here you’ll find all you need to start regular play streets as well as other actions to spark change where you live. Also ideas, stories and inspiration gathered from people around the UK and beyond.
