Children drawing chalk people along the road during a Play Street session in Hackney


Hackney Play Association is a local charity that aims to improve children and young people’s health, well-being and quality of life, through play.

Our vision is for Hackney to be a child-friendly borough, in which all children and young people have access to a range of high quality, inclusive play opportunities in their locality.

We believe that play is vital for children and young people’s health and wellbeing, particularly for children facing barriers due to poverty, disability, gender and race.

All children love to play.  Play builds happy, healthy children and it brings parents and families together in the community.

You can find out more about the benefits of play at: www.playengland.net.
