Play Against Borders

We are mobilising for children on the move.

Project Play is a grassroots organisation that works with displaced children in northern France, facilitating facilitate safe spaces for children to play, learn and be themselves.


All children have the right to play.

We are a group of volunteer teachers and play workers who believe in the power of play. We advocate for every child to have access to play and education, and for an end to the policies that deny children on the move access to this right.

Children on the France-UK border are denied access to school. School is where children learn, grow and develop. It is where they build friendships, learn to overcome challenges and to develop a sense of self. By donating, you can help us continue to bring safe spaces to play to children who are missing out on vital years of schooling on the France-UK border. 

Thank you for your continued support and belief in the power of play.

So far in 2023 we have worked with over 750 children - facilitating play and learning for those denied their right to education. To keep running our service into 2024, we need your help.

This winter, we're running a fabulous raffle, as well as offering some wonderful gifts for your loved ones. Bring a slice of play into your winter, whilst making a big difference to our service.

We're looking for energetic, dedicated and experienced individuals to join our Board of Trustees, who work remotely to support our team on the ground to run our service. We're particularly looking for a Treasurer, to help with bookkeeping, but we're also on the look out for other fabulous people who can bring expertise and energy to our team.

We actively encourage applications from those with lived experience, people of colour, and people who speak relevant languages.
