Hackney Play Association


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. Read more »

Southampton Scrapstore


The Southampton Scrapstore collects and holds a wide variety of waste materials, donated by local businesses, which are then re-used in the community for arts and craft projects and events. Our members are what make the Southampton Scrapstore happen. Without you being part of it we wouldn't be here at all. We also have a shop selling all those extras for your craft project, from paints to glue to paper, everything you can think of and all at competitive prices. Come have a look next time you're in!
