Charity information

Hackney Playbus

Hackney Playbus is a mobile community development and play resource for children under five and their parents/carers. Our service is friendly, welcoming and accessible and is delivered from a brightly painted double decker bus which has been fully converted into a exciting play and learning environment for children 0-4 yrs old. We work year round all over East London targeting housing estates and areas where statistics indicate that children may be growing up in poverty.

Founded 1972

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to take play and learning to those children under five whose life chances are at risk as a result of poverty and/or isolation faced by their families. We work in the interests of social welfare to provide information on early years support for the inhabitants of the London Borough of Hackney and surrounding boroughs and to ensure that every child is linked into the support services that they need for a happy and healthy start in life.

  • Aims

    Hackney Playbus aims to:

    • This year we must replace our Playbus with a newer improved model and must raise £15,000 by January 2017.
