NI at Play is a social enterprise and registered charity set up to promote the benefits of outdoor play for children and young people. We provide children, young people, parents and those who work with children opportunities to engage in outdoor play through practical play sessions, training and workshops.



NI at Play understand the difficulties of creating interesting and adventurous play spaces for children; some children like the mess of arts and crafts, others love role play and dressing up, while for some the amount of energy they expel makes them hard to keep up with. We can offer advice and learning from our experiences as playworkers to help you to develop your play space.

As adults and staff working with children and young people some of us love crafts and mess, others prefer running about and delivering games sessions. NI at Play can provide practical play sessions, ideas and activities to occupy all those interests.

NI at Play want children to experience the thrill of building a den, making and creating from scrap/recycled materials, toasting marshmallows over a fire, making mud pies and potions and much more.

NI at Play have worked with Primary Schools, Nurseries, Playgroups, Day Nurseries, Sure Start groups, Youth Clubs, Summer Schemes, Voluntary Youth Groups, Parenting Groups and many others.
