The Play Place Development Team have been developing and delivering youth and community projects on a not for profit basis since 2006. We have worked with over 50 commissioners in Kent, South London, Bromley and Croydon.

Our partners have included Housing Associations, Local Authorities, District, Town and Parish Councils, Government Transition Funding and grant givers including The Big Lottery, private gifts and charitable trusts. In recent years against the backdrop of a reduction in grant and commissioned programmes, we have been developing and selling services on a commercial basis that utilise an Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) approach.

Play Place are always pleased to work with partners who want to develop new services either in partnership or on a bespoke commissioned consultation basis.

Our support may include:

  • Bid writing 
  • Project planning
  • Capacity Building and staffing support


  • Initial assessment meeting - Free
  • Consultation & bid writing from £220 per day
  • Business Training From £200 per day
  • Volunteer and staff AQA Accredited Training in Basic Youth Skills from £150pp 

(Free to Dartford and Croydon Volunteer Residents and community groups)
