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 this area?

Currently we don’t know of anything that people or the local authority are actively doing in this area so that children can play out more in the places where they live. But if you do know of anything, we’d love to hear about it.

If you live in the area and want to get things going, see our tips on how to get your council on board. If you get stuck or need further help, then please get in touch with us and we can help!
