London Play

  • Mission statement

    We have a vision of a capital city where all children have the freedom to play.

    Play in London is under attack. Space for play is threatened by encroaching development and the dominance of traffic. Freedom to play is stifled by distorted perceptions of risk, and fear. Time for play is eroded by the competing demands of homework, scheduled activities and digital entertainment. Budgets for play workers and play spaces are shrinking.

    Play in London needs a voice. London Play is that voice.
