SNYE Community PLAYback Project

SNYE Community PLAYback Project

South Northants Youth Engagement (SNYE) have secured funding from the London Marathon Charitable Trust, via Northamptonshire Community Foundation to deliver a series of Street Play events across South Northants

This project will seek to offer 'Doorstep Opportunities' and bring Communities together to reclaim their Streets for Play, Activity and to improve Community Bonding.

Research shows that playing out on a street near their homes is vital to children's health and wellbeing. Play England research has found that 71% of adults played in the street or area near their home every day when they were a
child, only 21% of children do so today.

SNYE will deliver 10 events at various locations across the South Northants Council area and we are now looking for both locations in which to deliver the project and local Community Champions / Playmakers to maintain the project moving forward (Full Volunteer support will be offered). The events will be delivered in Spring 2021

If your Community / Location would like to host one of these events and continue the project moving forward please contact:

Martin Gillett, Project Manager
martin.gillett@oxonplay.org.uk / 07436 270267

This project will be based on the Playing Out model delivered in Bristol, for further information please visit www.playingout.net

To ensure the sustainability of the project they are also looking for Community Champions / Playmakers to take the project forward (full Volunteer support will be given)
