About this cause

About our cause

We are a third sector organisation passionate about promoting both the importance of play and high quality play opportunities for children and young people. We are a member led organisation representing the play sector and working as an advocate for children’s play. Membership to Birmingham PlayCare Network (BPCN) including the Scrapstore is open to individuals, groups, community organisations based locally, regionally or nationally who support BPCN’s desire to voice the issues and concerns of the play sector; to share information, facilitate contact, offer support and share best practice in child-centred play and playcare. The scrapstore Birmingham officially opened its doors in October 2011. BPCN’s scrapstore supports the reuse of unwanted materials that have been donated by businesses and individuals across Birmingham. We collect and sort waste/surplus materials which would often be diverted to landfill and redistribute it to our scrapstore members. For more information on the scrapstore please visit Play in Parks (PIP) is an open access scheme providing play opportunities in parks located within disadvantaged areas of Birmingham and is aimed at children aged 5 to 13.

PIP has previously run for nine years on an annual basis over 4 weeks during the summer school holidays and 1 week over the school Easter and Autumn holidays in different parks across Birmingham. PIP provides a great range of playful activities and games for local children and their families, our Playworkers wear uniforms with the Play in Parks and BPCN logos.
