Who we are
Play Gloucestershire is the local charity that helps children to Get Out and Play! Our mission is to transform children's lives using the power of outdoor play. We believe that outdoor play is an essential part of a happy and healthy childhood, and benefits children, families, schools and communities.
Our Play rangers provide active and creative play in urban and rural communities in the Cheltenham, Cotswolds, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Stroud and Tewkesbury districts of Gloucestershire. Activities are both school and community based, providing adventure, friendship and fun for hundreds of young people each year.
School aged children and their families are the beneficiaries of our work. We particularly support children from disadvantaged and rurally isolated communities, and those impacted by adverse childhood experiences.
