Support us

Donations really help us out, but there are
lots of other ways you can support us too

Unleash your superpowers!

Why not join our thriving team, bring in your old toys and materials, make a donation or share your skills. It all goes towards sustaining what we do best: making sure the children and young people in Islington have access to awesome adventure play.

Support us to continue offering these free and safe play spaces that challenge and build confidence (and superpowers).

There are lots of ways to get involved – by joining the Friends group, helping to run sessions, mentoring staff, construction, gardening, maintenance, fundraising, cleaning, administration, or just being an advocate of children’s play!

Even small donations make a big difference

Using our secure form, send us a one-off donation or set up a monthly gift.

“It was amazing to be a part of it. There’s a great atmosphere to volunteer in and it’s wonderful to see children making memories and experiencing playing in ways you can’t anymore. I highly recommend it!”

Toys and materials

We accept donations of toys and materials at all of our playgrounds. Our adventurers like to play – a lot – so we’re always looking for fresh supplies, from leftover wallpaper to children’s books.

Take my toys and materials!

Yep, it’s true – we want your pennies too. But it all goes to a tremendous cause that really does put smiles on children’s faces, giving them opportunities they might not otherwise have access to.

Friends groups are made up of local people, all sharing a passion for their local adventure playground who meet anytime, from a monthly to quarterly basis. A Friends group can support a wide range of activities, from fundraising and applying for small funding pots for resources, family trips and new services, to organising exciting events.
