Merseyside Play Action Council

Merseyside Play Action Council believes that play is a creative and educational process as well as a recreational activity. It supports and initiates a wide range of activities which develop the whole child. It provides training, facilities, lobbying and support for playschemes and playworkers. It pledges to do so in such a way as to benefit children irrespective of race, religion, sex and disability and to offer respect to all children, their families and their traditions.


MPAC’s aim is to benefit children and young people in an area of deep-seated social and economic need, primarily through support for playschemes and play workers and increasingly also for the youth and community sector. MPAC has been the Play Development Agency for Liverpool since 1973, providing services, training, facilities and equipment for its 75 member organisations which make up Liverpool’s play sector, as well as for its 100 affiliate members. Many of the services it provides for children and for play organisations (and through its Affiliation Scheme for other voluntary and statutory play, youth, community and cultural organisations) are not available through any other source in Liverpool.
