We aim to help improve play opportunities for children and young people and to reach as many children and young people as possible. Here’s how we do it…

Our Play Team
We have highly experience play professionals onsite who have a portfolio of play services to help support schools and play setting in improving their play environment. This includes the extremely successful Scrapstore PlayPod that is revolutionising children’s lunchtimes in primary schools.
Parents 4 Play
We have designed our very own campaign with the aim to create an inspiring and informative information and chat network about play for parents, by parents. We believe play is the single most valuable contribution for a child’s development outside of formal education.
Over the coming year you’ll discover P4P events and social media activity led by parents and supported by leading organisations in Bristol and surrounding areas. You can find out more on the Parents 4 Play page of this website.
Our social media
We are a fun bunch and post regularly on Facebook and twitter.
We look forward to seeing you here at Scrapstore House or chatting online. Here’s how to find us.
