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 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 safe spaces to play. Play is a fundamental right which every child is entitled to - and it's also an invaluable component of childhood, essential for healthy development. Through play, children build friendships, learn to overcome challenges and to develop a sense of self.


We've been facilitating safe spaces for children on the move in northern France to play, grow and learn since 2018. As long as we're able, we'll continue to do so, and we'll continue to fight for change.

Stand up for the right to play in 2024. Committing to a monthly donation - however small - will help us continue our work. 

This year, defend the right to play.
