Update: January 2021, the BAPP office is currently closed, however, staff are continuing to provide support and are working remotely. Please email us or call the office on 01225 832479. The Hut Preschool and Nursery remains open.

As part of 3SG and the increased numbers of people from across the B&NES area wanting to help and be part of being a compassionate community 'a Hub' has been set up in conjunction with Virgin Care to try and co-ordinate a response to need. This has now gone live!  Please share with anyone who might be vulnerable and/or isolated, so that they can call 0300 247 0050 and help will be provided.

Once again, Bath Area Play Project have been chosen as a local Co-Op Community Fund Cause!  This runs from 25th October 2020 until 23rd Oct 2021, in which we receive two lump sum payments. This will go towards resources and venue costs for family play sessions to support families to play together.


How this works...... every time you shop in the co-op using your loyalty card, 3 local charities benefit. You can support all 3, or log in through the members portal and select BAPP. Wherever you are in the UK, once you are a member, you can choose BAPP – just extend the search radius to one that would include Bath BA1  or BA2 and then you will find us! Or use our cause number 48529


Every time you buy selected co-op branded products you will earn a % for local causes as well as earning your own points to spent at your leisure. Nice wee bonus in time for Christmas!


What to do next.....
