Every Child has a right to Play

BAPP is a registered charity and local voluntary organisation. We promote and facilitate opportunities for children and young people to play and participate in positive activities. We promote the importance of self-directed play for child development and the rights of children.


We are currently planning our Winter Play Event on Weds 29th November – watch out for the flyer on our Facebook page for details on how to book a place for Santa’s Grotto. We will also be having a naughty Elf Trail in Odd Down, Keynsham and Twerton. 


Where you would like to support a family this Christmas, then please consider getting involved and putting together a Reverse Advent Calendar. This can be a great way to help children understand the nature of giving at this time of year. Please email enquiries@bapp.org.uk if you would like more information and be allocated a family.


Bath Area Play Project are a small voluntary organisation established in 1979 to support the child’s right to play and facilitate a range of play opportunities for children of all ages and abilities.
