Bath Area Play Project provide a range of services directly supporting children’s right to play and enjoy their leisure time or time out of school usually without their parents!
BAPP work across the Bath area with most services targeted in specific areas or for specific groups or communities. These are currently described by Commissioners as obesity hotspots for Community Play Ranger sessions however our work has since we began, always been focused in the same areas: Twerton, Southdown, Foxhill, Odd Down and Weston.
The TURTLE Toy Library provides a range of toys and equipment suitable for children and young people from birth to 16 years and is based at the Hut in Twerton.
Targeted Holiday Playschemes are specialist services for disabled children and young people and we deliver this contract as Lead Partner with 3 other organisations; KIDS, Bath Opportunity Pre-school and Fosse Way School.
Inclusive Holiday Playschemes are for disabled and non-disabled children and young people; 5 – 12 years provision is at the Hut in Twerton during Easter, Summer and October school holidays and 12 – 19+ years provision is during the summer only with our SOFA (Summer Of Fun Activity) programme.
SOFA is part of our youth programme which also includes Teenage Rampage, an evening weekly youth club for disabled teenagers aged 13 – 19 years and BA2 for all young people aged 11 – 17 years, again weekly and both provided at Odd Down Community Centre.
All of these services have the child / young person at the centre and are led by qualified and experienced staff and volunteers who build strong and effective relationships with children, supporting them to reach their potential.
