Make your street a place to play

Welcome

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.

Also ideas, stories and inspiration gathered from people around the UK and beyond.
