PLAY PRACTITIONERS PROJECT: 2009 - 2012


PlayPoint was a new Play Practitioners Project that was operated by Wirral Play Council and funded for three years by the Big Lottery Fund.

The project's aim was to provide varied and challenging play opportunities for children aged 6 - 13 years and to encourage them to become involved in the planning and design of the project and also engage parents/carers to get involved, through volunteering and planning play activities.

Five key areas on the Wirral were identified that would benefit from Open Access play opportunities.  These venues were chosen after consultation with local community members, voluntary groups, parents and children.

Playpoint sessions were FREE of charge and children could come and go as they pleased.
