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 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.
