Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Playground Ideas' mission is to give anyone, anywhere the skills to create time and space for children to play. We achieve this mainly through providing free online resources that anyone no matter where they live, can access and use. These resources include manuals on designing, safety, building, loose parts, fundraising and more and over 150 different playground design elements with full building instructions. We have also produced new resources in the last year including a starter kit, a Case for Play research document and an infographic on the power of play which has been translated into 22 different languages. Playground Ideas provides support and advice to people through email, skype and phone, and can be contracted for on-site builds if needed. We also use our global network of play organisations (the Global Play Alliance) to provide local support to people and create a network of organisations promoting play, sharing resources and supporting each other. In 2016, we supported 410 projects impacting approximately 200,000 children around the world.
