What’s happening in Wolverhampton?

Wolverhampton for Everyone is supporting local people to activate playing out in the city, starting with two pilot streets in Whitmore Reans in November 2019. City of Wolverhampton Council have recently launched a policy and process for residents to start playing out and have bought kits from us to help streets get started.

The council policy information is here and the application form is here. You can contact the council on letsplayout@wolverhampton.gov.uk for more information.

You can also contact Sam at Wolverhampton for Everyone by emailing: hello@wolverhamptonforeveryone.org

If you know of anything else that has happened recently with playing out in Wolverhampton please get in touch so we can keep this page up to date.
