See how the street play movement is growing across the UK
We’re adding a pin for every area where parents, residents, a community organisation or the council (and ideally, all of them together) are starting to change things for children through play streets and related ideas. The movement is growing! See what’s happening near you by entering the name of your local authority (council) in the box below. Tell us if you want to get something started in your area – or if there’s anything to add to our map!
What’s happening in Lewisham?
In Lewisham we know of a few streets that have closed for play sessions on a one-off basis and are hoping to make it a regular thing.

If you know of anything else happening in this area, or want some extra support from us to get going, please do get in touch!
