There are many ways in which the Play Forum can support local community groups with play events. This year we are looking to work with community groups from all areas of Somerset to help them create new outdoor play initiatives. We can offer support, guidance, advertising, training and even small grants.

‘Play is the mechanism in which children experience the world around them and where they explore the physical, intellectual, spiritual, social and emotional processes that carry them through life.’



Somerset Play Forum has a successful track record of providing high quality leadership and direction in promoting play and supporting the play practitioner workforce in Somerset. The forum offers information, advice and support, best-practice training and professional development including opportunities to network and share skills.



To continue this important work and build a sustainable future for play in Somerset, the play forum management committee is seeking an exceptional organisation or individual who will be able to deliver high quality provision across Somerset so that ‘play’ remains central to children’s lives.


If you think you have the right skills to take on this challenge and want to know more, come along to the:
