About Play Gloucestershire

Our Play Rangers provide active and creative play in urban and rural communities in the Cheltenham, Cotswold, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Stroud and Tewkesbury districts. Activities are both school and community based, providing adventure, friendship and fun for hundreds of young people each year.

School aged children and their families are the main beneficiaries of our work. We particularly support children from disadvantaged and rurally isolated communities and those living in challenging circumstances.

What are Play Rangers?

Our Play Rangers are trained playworkers who take their skills and equipment to where children play, both in schools and in community spaces. They deliver active and creative play outdoors all year round, whatever the weather. Their job is to make play happen, and they co-create play alongside children and other family members.
