Gedling Play Forum
Gedling Play Forum, founded in 1987, is a registered charity number 1123602 and a company limited by guarantee number 06538537. We were founded to support children’s play within Gedling Borough.
We believe that children need and have the right to play in their communities: the right to play is enshrined in Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
We believe that play promotes wellbeing so that it is beneficial to all, regardless of age. As George Bernard Shaw said:
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.”
We support the wider community to encourage family play, making memories, supporting learning and community cohesion.
Through our Resource Centre we provide a range of services to support our local community. Services range from providing a scrap store to community play activities, from volunteering activities to workshops. In the summer of 2023, we will be adding equipment hire, room hire and photocopying to our services.
