Service description:
Play Rangers are playworkers who facilitate and support children's play in outdoor environments.

Children have increasingly less freedom to roam and play out than their parents and their parents parents. Combined with increased parental fear of traffic, strangers, and other dangers, means that children are often unable to access their local community green spaces unsupervised.

Play Rangers are there to facilitate children's play, encourage greater use of community green space through play and to supervise and support children to play.

Play Rangers was first brought to Northampton in 2008 via funding to Northampton Borough Council from the Big Lottery Project. In the 4 year funded project we were able to provide 9859 children and young people with the opportunity to play outdoors

Since moving over to Northampton leisure Trust in April 2011 we have continued to deliver Play Ranger sessions both during school holidays and after school by working with local Councillors, and Parish Councils.
