Remember playing hide and seek? Tag? Jump rope? At TWC we love playing games, and we believe that play and leisure activities perform an increasingly important role in developing communities, combating social exclusion and disadvantage, and increasing opportunities for bringing people together. It was with this in mind that we developed a new project called Let’s Play in partnership with the London Borough of Hounslow. and Thames Valley Housing Association
The Let’s Play project is centred on the role of sports and leisure in the context of play, community engagement, empowerment and development. Adapting traditionalplaying games, we will be running a series of play-themed community events, designed to engage and equip local community groups and individuals of all ages with the tools, places and inspiration to make play accessible and a priority for everyone.
The project will be running from March to May.Keen to join in? To help get you started, we have developed the totally unique, Let’s Play games book which will be published end of February. Please email Hello@togetherwecreate.org.uk for a copy of this book. Every participant will receive a Play Book.
Thanks to the generous support of the Hounslow Community Grant and our team of volunteers who have helped make this project possible.
