Bath Area Play Project positively welcome all volunteers aged 14 years plus to get involved with our services either on a regular basis or one off or just during the school holidays. Volunteering can involve whatever you feel comfortable doing; this might be supporting an individual child or helping out with Playworkers to facilitate play. This could be sporty and active play, creative and messy play, construction, water play, bikes and scooters, den building and cooking.
Bath Area Play Project is committed to safeguarding. All volunteer positions working with children and young people are subject to satisfactory references and completion of an enhanced DBS disclosure.
There are a variety of opportunities available:
During term time we have a number of projects which may be of interest to you.

“I am very thankful for how welcoming everyone has been at The Hut, they made me feel very good and I enjoyed my time there.”
“Thank you for giving me the opportunity to get involved I have thoroughly enjoyed it.”
During school holidays, we also have these projects:
BAPP have a number of children and young people who have had some support as part of our Family Support and Play Service and would greatly benefit from having a Play Mentor. This would be a regular weekly or fortnightly commitment to spend some quality time with a child or young person. It could be that you enjoy sport and are happy to kick a ball around in the park or are a dab hand at baking and could help a child to learn some cooking skills. You may be a great listener and enjoy walking and exploring the local area or visiting museums. Whatever your skills, if you have some time that you can give, we have children that would really benefit from your time and support
